After Trump tweet, Pakistan talks of ‘response’ to US action

Pakistan is ready to face any U.S. action in the wake of President Donald Trump’s tweet on New Year’s Day threatening the country, the defense minister and the army spokesman said.

Defense Minister Khurram Dastagir said Thursday there should be “no doubt or fear as the defense of Pakistan is in competent and strong hands.” Earlier, army spokesman Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor said Pakistan’s response will be in line with the wishes of the Pakistani people.

Trump has accused Islamabad of providing a safe haven for terrorists. On Monday, he tweeted that the United States had “foolishly” given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid in the last 15 years and had gotten nothing in return but “lies & deceit.”
