US Ambassador Discusses Pakistan Aid Cut With India

US Ambassador Discusses Pakistan Aid Cut With India”

"The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools".

Referring to Trump's new strategy, Nauert said despite a sustained high-level engagement by Trump administration with the government of Pakistan, the Taliban and the Haqqani Network continue to find sanctuary inside Pakistan as they plot to destabilise Afghanistan and also attack the United States and allied personnel.

With that in mind, Yusufzai said that the aid cuts do not mean a complete USA break with the South Asian country. Just how much aid is to be suspended is not known precisely but it would all be military and no civilian aid is to be curtailed. They need Pakistan. Supply lines to Afghanistan pass through Pakistan.

Trump had been keen to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan; therefore, he had only reluctantly agreed to increase their numbers under pressure from his generals.

"So I expect there will be more talks".

"Good idea Rand!" Trump wrote on Twitter Friday night, retweeting a post by Rand Paul, a Republican senator from Kentucky, from earlier, saying, "I'm introducing a bill to end aid to Pakistan in the coming days". "This kind of running your foreign policy through the media can not achieve much, and is going to alienate more and more allies", he suggested. Already, fearmongering of Pakistan has begun, with Tillerson stating that he will add Pakistani Muslims to the Special Watch List, and U.S. politicians like Rand Paul have cashed in the hate, drafting bills for further cuts.

"It has so thoroughly shocked the elites that we actually are going to protect America, and defend America, and that we're actually going to render judgement", he said. The Pakistani minister of finance said that the American assistance is only one day's expenses for Pakistan.

"We can take unilateral steps".

"That is the way it has been portrayed, but I think there will be some effect, [even if] not much".

Nauert, in her media briefing in Washington, also noted, "No country has suffered more from terrorism than Pakistan". The US's refusal to introspect has been fundamental to the continuing war.

In this July 24, 2016 file photo, a USA military personal stands guard during a graduation ceremony for Afghan troops, in Lashkargah, capital of southern Helmand province, Afghanistan. "Though the government of Pakistan has been considered America's ally in the fight on terrorism, Pakistan's behavior would suggest otherwise".

Of these funds, $400 million can only be released if the secretary of defence Jim Mattis certifies that the Pakistan government has taken specific actions against the Haqqani Network. "Pakistan is saying that the Haqqani no longer exist in Pakistan".

Furthermore, one of the explanations Islamabad has been able to fall back on is the 2.7 million Afghan refugees living in Pakistan for almost four decades now, and among whom terror groups such as al-Qaeda and Haqqani can easily hide and operate.
