Pak military loses $255 m aid

Pakistan hits back at 'incomprehensible' Trump tweet

Washington, Jan 3 Pakistan needs to step up its fight against terrorism, the White House said today, as it defended President Donald Trump over his accusation that Islamabad deceived the United States by sheltering terrorists in return for dollars 33 billion aid.

In the tweet, Trump accused Pakistan - a key US anti-terrorism ally - of taking American leaders for "fools" and providing terrorists from neighboring Afghanistan "safe haven". That game is not acceptable to this administration, ' she said.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump posted a tweet saying that the US "foolishly" gave aid to Pakistan over the course of 15 years but the country remained deceitful by providing safe havens to terrorists from Afghanistan. We have two great powers with us when Washington tries to pressure Pakistan, ' the source underlined. There are clear reasons for this.

He said Pakistan would give its response on Trump's tweet and the matter would also be taken up in the parliament.

"Allies don't fight", he added, saying that "the USA should realize how Pakistan has been cooperative in the war against terror".

"US spokespersons should not shift the blame for their own mistakes and failures onto others". He later told local media that it's actually the United States that's aiding terrorists making incursions into Pakistan.

He said China is glad to see Pakistan engaging in worldwide cooperation, including counter terrorism, on the basis of mutual respect so as to contribute to regional peace and stability. "He has tweeted against us (Pakistan) and Iran for his domestic consumption", Asif told Geo TV on Monday.

The U.S. has long accused Islamabad of allowing militants to operate relatively freely in Pakistan's border regions to carry out operations in neighboring Afghanistan. Haley said that the U.S. would never accept North Korea as a nuclear power and threatened more sanctions if it carried out any more nuclear or missile tests.

Following Trump's insulting remark, Pakistan's Prime Minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi called a National Security Committee, NSC, meeting.

"He can hire a U.S. based Audit firm on our expense to verify this figure & let the world know who is lying & deceiving", Asif wrote in a tweet. According to local media, at least 10 people have been killed.
