The Bush administration has concluded it is not legally required to cut or suspend hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Pakistan despite President Pervez Musharraf's imposition of a state of emergency and a crackdown on the opposition and independent media.

US assistance to the key anti-terrorism and nuclear armed ally - which has totaled nearly $10 billion since 2001 - is governed by legislative requirements that could trigger automatic aid cutoffs, but all are covered by locked-in presidential waivers, said officials familiar with a government-wide review. Those waivers exempt Pakistan from aid restrictions. They do not need to be renewed until Congress approves the budget for the current fiscal year that began Oct. 1 and requests $845 million for Pakistan.
