Updated: 2004-03-18 13:55

The United States will designate Pakistan as a major non-NATO ally, a step that would enhance U.S.-Pakistani military cooperation, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said Thursday.

"We'll designate Pakistan as a major non-NATO ally for purposes of our future military-to-military relations," Powell told a news conference.

The designation non-NATO ally makes it easier for governments to acquire U.S. military hardware.
