From Iran’s PressTV: The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has offered to help the Islamabad government train and equip Pakistani security forces to fight pro- Taliban militants.

“I can confirm that we had a good discussion on how we could further develop practical cooperation, including training activities,” NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told reporters in Brussels on Monday.

“It will be a process driven by Pakistani demands; but if it is a request from the Pakistani military or the Pakistani government, NATO is prepared to engage in training activities,” he added. (photo: NATO)
