ISLAMABAD: US special representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan Richard Holbrooke Sunday said Pakistan at the moment lacks sufficient resources for launching any kind of offensive in North Waziristan and that Pakistan itself will decide when to go for it.
In an exclusive interview with Geo News’ anchor Sana Buccha here, the US envoy said the US looks at Pakistan’s dearth of resources with sympathy.
He admitted that all the countries including the US have failed to stop the funding of terrorists.
Holbrooke reiterated that his country respects Pakistan’s autonomy, ruling out any possibility of the US to make it across Pakistan through Afghan border.
He criticized the report of London School of Economics in which Pakistan was blamed for not taking effective action against the terrorists.
The US envoy said that his country played a significant role in the release of three Pakistanis who were detained by Israeli authorities in its action against Freedom Flotilla.
