WASHINGTON: World Bank President Robert Zoellick has said the next U.S. administration emerging from November 4 election must focus on long-term development partnership with Pakistan as part of efforts to ensure peace and stability in key South Asian region.

Writing an article for The Washington Post, Zoellick notes that both presidential candidates Democratic Barack Obama and Republican John McCain are alive to regional dangers in the context of security challenges but underscored success will take an approach, encompassing all the various trouble-shooting elements.

Both candidates have recognized the dangers in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but success will take more than troops.

The earliest hard-edged test for the new administration will be synthesizing security, governance, legitimacy and development in a long-term partnership with both countries and with a wider coalition, from NATO to China and India, he advocates in an article due to appear in the Post on Sunday.

A successful wind-down in Iraq, a path of progress for Afghanistan and Pakistan, and a push for peace and development in the Middle East will also set the context for achieving broader peace and security in the region, says Zoellick, who served as U.S. deputy secretary of state in 2005-06.
