Complete video at: http://fora.tv/series/monitor_breakfast US aid to Pakistan may not have large short-term effects, argued Pakistani Ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani at a breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor, but eliminating or reducing aid unnecessarily stresses a relationship already near the breaking point - and forestalls long-term benefits. ----- On Wednesday, November 16, 2011, Pakistani Ambassador to the U.S. Husain Haqqani joined the Monitor Breakfast for a conversation with reporters. Husain Haqqani is Pakistan's Ambassador to the United States in Washington, DC.

Haqqani came to the U.S. in 2002 as a Visiting Scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington DC and an adjunct Professor at the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University. He is a leading journalist, diplomat, and former advisor to Pakistani Prime ministers. His syndicated column is published in several newspapers in South Asia and the Middle East, including Oman Tribune, Jang, The Indian Express, Gulf News and The Nation (Pakistan).
