Pakistan on Friday seemed unsure about how to respond to a $5 million aid offer from India to help it meet its flood crisis. The offer was made by Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna in a telephonic conversation with his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi. Mr Krishna described the offer as a “gesture of solidarity with the people of Pakistan in their hour of need”, a statement issued by the Indian High Commission here said. A statement by Foreign Office here on Mr Krishna’s call did not mention the Indian aid offer. However, sources in the foreign ministry indicated that it was being considered. “We have not rejected the offer outright and a decision would be made soon,” a senior official told Dawn. —Staff Reporter
