Australia to cease all bilateral aid to Pakistan

Dec 03, 2019 15:22 IST

Australia is ceasing all bilateral aid to Pakistan, including support to programmes helping poor women and girls. The latest report by Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade says the funds were being redirected to meet new commitments in the Pacific. The report said the Pakistan bilateral aid programme will be reduced to 19 million Australian dollars in 2019-20, and will fully phase out during 2020-21.
