    Pakistan has offered to supply ammunition to foreign troops fighting in Afghanistan, Pakistani Foreign Minister said on Saturday

    Pakistan can provide quality ammunition to British and other coalition troops in Afghanistan, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmud Qureshi told at a joint news conference with his British counterpart.

    British Foreign Secretary David Miliband is in an official tour to Pakistan, discussing bilateral issues with the Pakistani officials, including its role in the Western counter-terrorism campaign in the region.

    Miliband said peace and security in Afghanistan depends on security and stability in Pakistan.

    Security, stability and prosperity in Afghanistan depends on security, stability and prosperity in Pakistan, he said.

    He said the main objective of his visit, the sixth since he took over, was to take Pakistan into confidence about the London Conference on Afghanistan on January 28.

    Britain is going to host an international summit later month in London on aiding war-weary Afghanistan.

    It is something we should be completely self sufficient for.
     
  7. Apologies. I thought he was referring to a stock of poor quality 7.62mm that was acquired from India on a previous occasion.
     
  8. Agreed
