FORCING IMPROVED RELATIONS WITH RUSSIA: Trump Cancels $300 Million Aid To Pakistan

The US military plans to cancel a $300 million aid package to Pakistan because of Islamabad’s lack of “decisive action” in support of US strategy in the region, the Pentagon said on Saturday.

The US has pushed Pakistan to crack down on the havens of militants in the country and announced a freeze on aid earlier this year, which, according to one official, could be worth almost $2 billion.

The US Department of Defense has tried to cut aid by $300 million “because of the lack of decisive Pakistani actions in support of the South Asia Strategy,” Lieutenant Colonel Kone Faulkner said in an e-mail to AFP.
