  2. U.S. Assistance to Pakistan

A stable, prosperous, and democratic Pakistan that plays a constructive role in the region will remain in the long-term U.S. national interest.

U.S. civilian assistance to Pakistan has delivered real results on the issues most important to all Pakistanis: energy, stability, education, health, and economic growth. Since the 2009 Kerry-Lugar-Berman authorization, the U.S. government has committed over $5 billion in civilian assistance to Pakistan and over $1 billion in emergency humanitarian response.

U.S. security assistance contributes to a strong, stable, and enduring defense relationship with Pakistan. Since 2010, the U.S. government has contributed more than $8 billion in assistance and reimbursements to develop and operate Pakistan’s counterinsurgency and counterterrorism forces to improve peace and stability in the western border regions.

The people of Pakistan and the United States share a fundamental desire for stability, the hope for peace, and support for regional and global economic development.

We believe that if Pakistan is secure and peaceful and prosperous, that’s not only good for Pakistan, it’s good for the region and it’s good for the world.
