The US will not transfer $ 255 million of military aid to Pakistan
The Trump administration has decided not yet to pay millions of military aid to Pakistan, since the president accuses the Muslim people of sheltering terrorists and “lying” to the United States.
"The United States does not plan to pay $ 255 million in military funding to Pakistan," said a spokesman for the National Security Council. Fox News Monday.
The official added: "The president has made it clear that the United States expects Pakistan to take decisive action against terrorists and militants on its territory."
The Trump administration will continue to "review the level of cooperation with Pakistan," the official said.
Earlier Monday, President Trump, in his first twitter, 2018, wrote that the United States "thoughtlessly gave Pakistan more than 33 billions of dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they gave us nothing but lies and deception, mistaking our leaders for fools."
Last week newspaper The New York Times reported that the Trump administration was considering retaining $ 255 million in aid to Pakistan in order to demonstrate its dissatisfaction with how they are fighting terrorism in their country.
For years, the United States has been disappointed with the Pakistan-nuclear power, where Osama bin Laden was hiding until the 2011 year.
In response to Trump's Twitter account, Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja M. Asif swore that "the world will know the difference between fact and fiction."
Last month, the president hinted at retaining assistance during a national security appeal.
“We made it clear to Pakistan that while we want to continue the partnership, we must take decisive action against terrorist groups operating on their territory,” Trump said on December 18. “We make huge payments to Pakistan every year. They have to help. "
