Published: Wednesday, 09/06/2006 12:00 am EDT

Defence Minster Gordon O'Connor wrapped up a visit to Afghanistan and Pakistan last weekend by clarifying comments he made about Canadian troops in Pakistan. "At no time did I advocate, suggest or imply I favoured stand-alone Canadian troop deployment in Pakistan," Mr. O'Connor told reporters. "What I said was that Canada needs to engage with Pakistan as part of our security and reconstruction mission in Afghanistan."
