India's flood aid offer to Pak a 'tremendous gesture': US

WASHINGTON: Describing as a "tremendous gesture" India's aid offer for Pakistani flood victims, the US has said it was "gratified" by Islamabad's decision to accept USD 5 million in assistance extended by its neighbour.

"It was a tremendous gesture by India offering assistance to Pakistan and we are gratified that Pakistan has decided to accept that offer," State Department spokesman, P J Crowley, told reporters last evening.

IMO: Pleased to see there is at least some common sense left in the world.
