Pakistan president says new US policy 'positive'

Pakistan's president has welcomed the Obama administration's new policy to counter al-Qaida as a "positive change" and insisted his country will not allow its territory to be used for terrorist attacks.
In a speech to Parliament on Saturday, Asif Ali Zardari said Obama's call for Congress to grant annual civilian aid of US$1.5 billion to Pakistan was an endorsement of Islamabad's call for development as a means to fight extremism.
