This hearing before the Subcommittee on International Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Human Rights and the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific assesses the environment for terrorism in Asia and the Pacific, and the success of the United States and others in combating terrorism. Hon. James A. Leach asserts that "throughout Asia we need to address the root causes of despair, disease, hunger, the perceived lack of respect, dispiriting of society that occurs when governments succumb to the practices of corruption that are robbing so many of their future." Issues include the prohibition of infiltration of Islamic extremists across the Line of Control into India and Kashmir; Pakistan's and India's short-range ballistic missile tests; and the suspected Pakistan/North Korean proliferation relationship. Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: J. Cofer Black, Christina B. Rocca, Matthew P. Daley, Zachary Abuza, Timothy D. Hoyt, B. Raman, Robert B. Oakley, James A. Leach, Eni F. H. Faleomavaega, Elton Gallegly, Dan Burton, Joseph R. Pitts, Thomas G. Tancredo, and Gary L. Ackerman.
