America’s new defence spending bill raises concerns about US interference in Pakistan’s domestic affairs.

“The US Senate has passed a big defence spending bill which aims to ensure that military aid to Pakistan is used solely to fight America’s ‘war on terror’. It sets tough new conditions which say that no resources given by the US to Pakistan may be used against India. The bill also stipulates that US military hardware sent to Pakistan must be tracked to see where it ends up. Recently, former President Pervez Musharraf said Pakistan used US aid to strengthen defences against India. The BBC’s Imtiaz Tyab in Washington says the bill is likely to fuel tensions over what Islamabad sees as US interference in its domestic affairs.”
