ISLAMABAD - Germany will assist Pakistan in modernising its police force so that it is better equipped to deal with terrorism, officials and diplomatic sources said on Tuesday.

Officials from Germany's Federal Criminal Investigation Police (BKA) will help Pakistan's National Police Bureau upgrade its national crime database and automated fingerprint identification system.

The assistance was agreed at talks between delegations led by BKA vice president Bernhard Falk and National Police Bureau chief Shoaib Suddle, officials said.

"The area of cooperation has broadened with a greater focus on the war against terrorism," diplomatic sources said, adding Germany is ready to help Pakistan improve the overall capacity of its police force.

"We are confident that the services and performance of our country's police will be considerably enhanced with exposure to the standard practices being followed by the police forces in Germany and other countries with whom Pakistan is cooperating", Suddle said.

Pakistan is also cooperating closely with the United States, China, Japan and Britain in the area of counter-terrorism.
