US suspends $1.66 billion security assistance to Pakistan, know more

Pentagon has confirmed the development and with this the experts believe is a strong signal of American frustration

Yet another step to strain ties between US and Pakistan as the former has suspended $1.66 billion in security assistance to latter.

This was done after President Donald Trump’s directive.

The Pentagon has confirmed the development and with this the experts believe is a strong signal of American frustration.

The Americans have now put out that Pakistan’s leaders have promised cooperation, but beyond words, serious cooperation has not happened, therefore President Trump is frustrated and so are most Americans.

Over the last few days, Mr Trump has said that people in Pakistan knew about the presence of Laden.

While Pakistan has suffered terribly from terrorism, Islamabad has also enabled terror groups that attack its neighbours, he said.

In September, the Trump administration cancelled $300 million in military aid to Islamabad for not doing enough against terror groups like the Haqqani Network and the Taliban active on its soil.
