* PM says new US security measures ‘discriminatory’
* US must immediately disburse $2 billion payable to Pakistan under CSF



ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on Friday described as “discriminatory” new security measures introduced by the US government to screen Pakistani nationals in America, and said persistence with such policies – which lead to “consternation and anxiety among Pakistanis” – could affect the bilateral ties.

According to a press statement issued after the prime minister’s meeting with a US congressional delegation led by Senator John McCain, Gilani called on the US government to revisit the policy, and asked for the immediate removal of Pakistan from the list of countries whose citizens are to be screened.
