United States Thursday said that its offer to provide all the means for the transportation and medical treatment for Malala Yousufzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban, was on the table for the Pakistani side, if they need it, Geo News reported. “President Barack Obama and his press secretary Jay Carney were pretty explicit about what we have proposed and offered.
