Pak Wants Indian Aid Routed Through UN
It is now official. Pakistan has declined India’s $ 5 million aid for the flood victims and is willing to accept it only if the same is routed through the United States.
Pakistan’s Foreign Office Spokesman Abdul Basit apparently told the country’s news channel Dunya TV that India has been informed that its aid would be accepted only if it is routed through the UN.
India had offered to assist in rehabilitating 20 million people displaced due to the flash floods that started on 28th July. More than 1,500 people have died due to this natural disaster in Pakistan.
