Obama Govt planned USD2.2bln aid to Pak in 2013

The Obama administration on Monday proposed USD 2.4 billion in financial aid to Pakistan for the fiscal year 2013 while submitting annual budget of USD 3.8 trillion that calls for tax hikes on the rich.

Of this, USD 2.2 billion is in assistance to strengthen democratic and civil institutions that provide a bulwark against extremism and support joint security and counter-terrorism efforts, including USD 800 million for the Pakistan Counter-insurgency Capability Fund, the State Department said soon after the White House sent the budgetary proposals to the Congress.

In addition to this, the budget also proposes USD 197 million support to the US government civilian presence, as well as programs for engagement with civil society, it said.
