Trump says United States has gotten 'nothing' from Pakistan aid

US President Donald Trump says 'no more' aid to Pakistan to fight terrorism

The latest move comes after the USA has been denied access to a member of the Taliban-linked Haqqani network who is in Pakistan's custody.

"They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help".

Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Monday called on Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi after US President Donald Trump accused Islamabad of giving nothing to the US but "lies and deceit", a media report said.

Trump who returned to the White House from Mar-a-Lago in Florida where he spent his Christmas and New Year vacation did not respond to shouted questions from reporters on "what is your plan on Pakistan?"

The reaction of his audience was notable, analysts said, since the Pentagon has historically been one of Pakistan's defenders in Washington because of its longstanding ties to the Pakistani military, the New York Times reported.

Lawmaker Hina Butt said Trump's criticism was "baseless". "I support the decision today by President Trump to end aid to Pakistan", Republican Congressman Markwayne Mullin from Oklahoma said.




"We are paying [a] heavy price in the war against terrorism and lost many lives of armed forces, law enforcement agencies and general public as well", she wrote. They did not detail what conditions Pakistan would have to meet to receive the aid.

There had been hopes in Pakistan than Coleman's successful rescue might see a turning-point in relations, with Trump calling it a "positive moment".

After a meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah at the presidential palace in Kabul late on December 21, Vice President Mike Pence had sharp words for Islamabad, saying that while Pakistan had much to gain from working with the United States, it also has much to lose by harboring "criminals and terrorists".

"They overlook cross-border safe havens of terrorists who murder Pakistanis", he added.

Trump's announcement follows an increasingly tense back-and-forth between Washington and Islamabad after the US President unveiled his administration's National Security Strategy.
