QUESTION TAKEN AT NOVEMBER 6, 2001 DAILY PRESS BRIEFING

U.S. Assistance to Pakistan for Border Security (Taken Question)

Question: Provide details about US assistance to Pakistan for border security; i.e. how much, in which fiscal year, for which programs?

Answer: In response to the events of September 11, the USG will provide approximately $73 million in emergency supplemental aid to Pakistani law enforcement agencies for purposes of border security. This project, which will be administered by the State Department's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), will provide helicopters, fixed wing aircraft, vehicles, communications equipment, night vision goggles, and other items, as well as appropriate training. This is a high priority for the Government of Pakistan. An assessment team from INL will be in Pakistan next week to consult with Government of Pakistan officials concerning the details and implementation of the project.
