The Obama administration has proposed a staggering amount of 3.1-billion-dollars, as financial assistance to Pakistan in the 2012 budget, despite its standoff with the Asian nation on double murder-accused US official Raymond Davis' detention issue.
The administration's assistance for Pakistan is broken up into two parts, the "enduring core part"- meaning long-term assistance programs- and the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO), Geo News quoted an administration official, as saying at a briefing on Obama's budget proposals for the fiscal year 2012, beginning October 1, 2011.
As part of the long-term economic and security assistance, Obama has proposed 1.9 billion dollars in the year 2012, which will also cover the cost of American aid operations and diplomatic presence in Pakistan.
