Islamabad, Sept 11: With the Pakistan-US going through a tough phase, Pakistan hopes to get back in the good books of the all-powerful US by placing an advertisement in the US media to reach out to Americans when the nation mourns the deadly Sept 11 attacks. Sunday saw the 10th anniversary of the deadly terror attacks.

The ad that appeared in the Wall Street Journal says, "Which country can do more for your peace. Since 2001, a nation of 180 million has been fighting for the future of the world's 7 billion."

Pakistan newspaper Dawn had reported that Islamabad had intended to give the ad in the The New York Times. But they refused to carry it.

The advertisement states that as many as 21,672 Pakistani civilians have lost their lives in the aftermath of the Sept 11 attacks a decade ago and with many others injured in the war against terror.

Media report said that the Pakistani Army had lost 2,795 soldiers with 8,671 soldiers wounded. Terrorism had also posed its setbacks to Pakistan as well with 3.5 million people displaced and $68 billion lost to terrorism.

The ad also stated that despite the sacrifices, Pakistan was still active in "the war for world peace". It added, "Can any other country do so? Only Pakistan."
