The Dutch government froze development aid to Pakistan on Monday in response to President Pervez Musharraf's declaration of emergency rule, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said. The move was intended to pressure Musharraf to restore democratic and constitutional processes and to confirm its intentions to go ahead with parliamentary elections in January, said spokesman Francesco Mascini said.
