On October 22, Deputy PolCouns and Poloff delivered reftel
points to Ayesha Farhat, Assistant Director of UN-I Office
with the MFA, concerning the readiness of Pakistan in making

Union/United Nations Hybrid operation in Darfur (UNAMID).
Concerning its pledged 329-person engineer company for West

Farhat noted that this Pakistani pledge had already been
fulfilled and the teams were on the ground in Darfur. She

equipment, given Pakistan's current economic situation and
security operations along the Pak-Afghan border.
