US suspends military aid to Pakistan
In a big move, the United States has suspended over one billion dollars in security aid to Pakistan on the charges of terrorism. Pakistan, who has been taking military aid from America in the name of fighting terrorism, will now face huge cuts.
Recently the President of the United States expressed his displeasure regarding the hollow efforts of Pakistan in fighting terrorism. Pakistan has failed to give any suitable outcome from the military aid which the country has been receiving.
“Today we can confirm that we are suspending national security assistance only, to Pakistan at this time until the Pakistani government takes decisive action against groups, including the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani Network,” State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters in a press conference last week.
This move by the US will also bring India closer to the US as the country has been long affected by the terrorism sponsored by Pakistan .
