Thread: Qureshi defends Kerry-Lugar bill in NA

  1. Qureshi defends Kerry-Lugar bill in NA



    Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi assured parliament on Friday no Pakistani authority had been conceded to benefit from the Kerry-Lugar bill of enhanced US aid to Pakistan as he wound up the most furious debate the present government faced in 18 months of its life.



    In speeches to the National Assembly and Senate to close prolonged opposition-sought discussions in the two houses hours after his return from urgent talks with US authorities, he put a brilliant defence of what President Barack Obama on Thursday signed into law as Enhanced Partnership with Pakistan Act of 2009, which will triple non-military US aid to Pakistan to $7.5 billion over the next five years.



    ‘Pakistan has neither conceded any of its authority nor it intends to concede anything,’ he said in identical speeches in the two houses before they were prorogued after talking out the opposition motions.

    In both houses, the minister was repeatedly applauded by desk-thumping by members of the PPP-led ruling alliance, particularly during an hour-long fiery speech in the 342-seat National Assembly, where only a few chants of ‘Shame, Shame’ and ‘Bill Namanzoor’ (bill not accepted) were raised from the opposition benches after Deputy Speaker Faisal Karim Kundi read out a presidential order proroguing the house after a 12-day session.

    most of the time he is very soft and polite i had never seen him before in this mood he was looking so furious while defending KL Bill. KL Bill definitely gave some extra power to him.
