Islamabad, Sep.10 (ANI): Pakistan has asked the United States to immediately release 1.6 billion dollars to it under the Coalition Support Fund.
Finance Ministry sources told the Dawn that a request has been forwarded to Washington again. It said that the United States has been quite sluggish in this regard.
Pakistan needs the funds to cater to its deteriorating economy and to fulfil the requirements of its defence and armed forces.
The last instalment provided by the US was released in the beginning of the prevailing year, after which Pakistan has not received any thing. (ANI)
