I checked out the EU's official briefer about what the Commission is involved in, in Pakistan, in the wake of the military operations in Malakand. This is what I found.
I will pick on one sentence in there.
"The Commission’s support is provided strictly in accordance with the principles of neutrality and impartiality"
Impartiality, that's fine. We don't want to give aid only, say, to Sikh residents of the Swat valley. That is practical.
But could somebody explain to me what "strict neutrality" means in this context?
Could somebody explain what the European Commission is trying hard-hard to communicate there?
