Pakistan soldiers killed by NATO forces

2011-12-01

Louis Delvoie, a Senior Fellow at the Centre for International and Defence Policy at Queen’s University, is available to talk about how the accidental killing of 24 Pakistan soldiers by NATO forces will impact international relations.

“At a time when it seemed that relations between Pakistan and the United States couldn’t not get any worse, the killing of 24 Pakistani soldiers by NATO forces in Afghanistan can only make things worse. However despite their mutual suspicion and enmity, the two countries still need each other and will persist however reluctantly keeping their relationship afloat,” says Mr. Delvoie.

Mr. Delvoie is a career diplomat who served as Canada’s High Commissioner in Pakistan during the 1990s.

Please note Louis Delvoie is only available for phone interviews.
