Pak stops intelligence coop with US after Trump's reprimand, military aid freeze

Thursday, January 11, 2018

Washington: The US today hoped that Pakistan would demonstrate its willingness to aggressively confront terror groups that operate from its soil, amid reports that Islamabad has suspended intelligence cooperation with America after the Trump administration froze military aid to it.

Pakistan's decision to suspend military and intelligence cooperation with America came after President Donald Trump accused Islamabad of giving nothing to the US but "lies and deceit" and suspended about USD 2 billion in security aid to it, Pakistani media quoted Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan as saying.

Pakistan has suspended military and intelligence cooperation with the United States in the wake of US President Donald Trump's allegations against the country, Khan said while addressing a gathering at Institute of Strategic Studies in Islamabad yesterday.

Speaking during the course of a seminar titled 'Contours of Security Environment of Pakistan', Khan said the US was using Pakistan as a "scapegoat" for its failures in war-torn Afghanistan.
