Pak-US ties indispensable, says Holbrooke
WASHINGTON: Richard Holbrooke, the US special envoy for Pakistan and Afghanistan, on Friday said the partnership between Washington and Pakistan was ‘indispensable’, and reaffirmed the Obama administration’s commitment to help Pakistan counter extremism along its northwestern border with Afghanistan.
Speaking at the launch of a Pushto broadcast service along the Pak-Afghan border regions by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), Holbrooke said broadcasting in the local language would help advance public debate and counter extremist propaganda
