Help offer for Malala still stands: US

13 October, 2012

WASHINGTON: The United States said its offer to provide all means for the transportation and medical treatment for Malala Yousufzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban, was on the table for the Pakistani side, if they need it.

"President Barack Obama and his press secretary Jay Carney were pretty explicit about what we have proposed and offered. But my understanding is that the Pakistanis have not come back to us with any specific requests", State Department's Victoria Nuland said during a daily press briefing. To a question, she said that White House had talked about the efforts against terror with Pakistan when with Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, who were here just a couple of weeks ago.

"We have an intense counterterrorism relationship. We would like to do even more together. We're continuing to try to work on these issues and encourage our Pakistani partners to do as much as they can against these issues, because Pakistanis are the greatest victims of terror inside their own country", said Nuland. Replying to another query she said they were in contact with the Pakistani side in the wake of attack on Malala.

"I think it speaks to the work that we're trying to do to get all of these working groups that we had under our counterterrorism cooperation back up and running - as you know, we had the counter-IED group, etcetera - and to continue to support each other and share intelligence, etcetera," she said.
