Pak stops Intel co-op after United States aid freeze

While Washington has frozen military aid to Pakistan the importance of the countributions to the country have dimished as the economy improves while it can also call on China Pak stops Intel co-op after United States aid freeze

The United States says it has not been officially notified that Pakistan has suspended military or intelligence cooperation with Washington.

Military and security funds being cut off to Pakistan for their alleged harboring of terrorists from the Haqqani network - one of the most risky insurgent groups in Afghanistan - comes after months of President Donald Trump accusing Islamabad of maintaining close relationships with the Afghan Taliban.

After much criticism from the Trump administration, the government of Pakistan has made a decision to cease all military and intelligence cooperation with the United States, according to Pakistani defence minister Khurram Dastgir Khan.

Khan was delivering a speech to the Institute for Strategic Studies which is sponsored by the Pakistani government and based in Islamabad.

But Khan noted the supply lines for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops in Afghanistan, formally known as the Ground Lines of Communication or the Air Lines of Communication are still open. "No more!", Trump said in a tweet.

A foreign ministry statement said the envoys were provided details about the success of operations Zarb-e-Azb and Raddul Fasaad, which had eliminated terrorist presence in Pakistan.

Pakistan's move comes as the USA - now fighting its war on terror in Afghanistan - suspended military aid to Islamabad, accusing it of harboring terrorists who attack foreign troops in Afghanistan.

Pakistan said the recent terrorist attack in Quetta has been traced back to Afghanistan.

Robin Raphel, a former assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asian affairs, told VOA on Wednesday Washington and Islamabad's current policy of tit-for-tat will not advance either side's interest.

Bella Thorne's Boyfriend, Mod Sun, Defends Her After Mudslides Tweet
In the wake of this horrific news, Bella Thorne incited some backlash after tweeting about why the 101 Freeway was closed down. On Thursday, Lowe shared a screen capture of Throne's tweet on his Instagram account and scathingly excoriated her comment.

The Pentagon's top press officer told reporters Monday that the United States wants Pakistan to take "decisive action" against terrorism within the region following the suspension of security funds and military equipment to the Pakistani government - a decision that drew harsh backlash last week from the USA ally.

This comes as the US President Donald Trump last week criticized Pakistan in strong words for harboring the terrorist groups despite receiving billions in aid to support the counter-terrorism efforts in Afghanistan.

Reports also suggested that the USA decision to block aid to Pakistan could affect about 2 billion US dollars worth of assistance.

"A reminder is in order". The supply lines are officially known as Air Lines of communication or the ground lines of communication.

Pakistan is considered the safest and cheapest route to resupply North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops.

A Pakistani court has ordered the release of the radical anti-U.S. cleric who went to Afghanistan with thousands of volunteers to help the Taliban fight against Americans after the 2001 USA -led invasion. He added that the U.S.is suspending but not cutting off permanently security aid to Pakistan.

Pakistan's response last week, however, was more tempered than previous official statements to past accusations.

The US State Department also announced last week that Washington has suspended all security aid to Pakistan until the country takes decisive actions against the terror groups.

Khan said his country wants to keep engagement with the United States open and would use its leverage after the utmost care and deliberation.
