US to give Pakistan $73 million for border security

The United States State Department on Tuesday night in a statement said it would provide Pakistan with $73 million dollars in emergency funds to safeguard the security of its borders, particularly with Afghanistan.

The assistance would include helicopters and planes, land vehicles, communications gear, night-vision goggles and training, the department release said.

"This is a high priority for the government of Pakistan," spokesman Richard Boucher said.

US officials have raised concern over reports that weapons, ammunition and other supplies destined for Afghanistan's Taleban militia, as well as fighters, have been crossing the Pakistani border to oppose the military operation.
