Pakistan convenes emergency meet after Trump announces end of USA aide

Cabinet meeting to discuss Trump tweet tomorrow Pakistan convenes emergency meet after Trump announces end of USA aide

Of foremost concern is Islamabad's attitude toward the powerful Haqqani network, accused of some of the most lethal attacks on United States forces in Afghanistan and dubbed by America's former top military officer Mike Mullen as a "veritable arm" of Pakistani intelligence.

The US administration continues to review Pakistan's level of cooperation, the official said.Earlier in the day, US President Donald Trump, in his first tweet of the New Year, blasted the Pakistan leadership by saying that they have given America "nothing but lies and deceit" despite having received more than United States dollars 33 billion in last 15 years.

"US must disengage with Pakistan and its terrorist army, it should stop giving funds to Pakistan, impose a travel ban on them, limit the global reach of Pakistani banks and isolate Pak from worldwide financial system", ANI quoted World Baloch Women Forum (WBWF)'s Naela Quadri Baloch as saying.

It's unclear what prompted Trump to tweet about Pakistan at this time.

Reacting to the ongoing protests in Iran, in which now at least 12 people have been killed in clashes with security services, Trump said Iran is "failing at every level".

"It is time for Pakistan to demonstrate its commitment to civilization, order and to peace", he said later in the August 21 speech.

According to reports, Pakistan's Minister of Foreign Affairs Khawaja Asif met Pakistan PM Shahid Abbasi for an emergency meeting at latter's residence.

Trump and other administration officials have called on India to become more involved in Afghanistan, an idea that is anathema to Islamabad.

Trump has in the past threatened to withhold the aid to Pakistan as the USA feels Islamabad is failing to cooperate on counterterrorism efforts.

Two people were shot dead in the southwestern town of Izeh while another two died in Dorud after being run over by a stolen fire truck, local news agencies reported.

The group was responsible for kidnapping a Canadian-American couple and holding them from 2012 to 2017, when Pakistani forces secured their release in what they said was as a rescue operation but some United States officials reportedly described as a "negotiated handover".

An announcement from Trump was around the corner as reports emerged a couple of days ago saying the administration was strongly considering to withhold the $255 million in aid to Pakistan, reflecting dissatisfaction with Islamabad's inaction against terror networks.

The minister reiterated that Pakistan is capable to defend its soil, and also said that we will not allow Afghan war to be fought on Pakistan's soil.

He also noted that the assumption in Pakistan is that India is fuelling Trump's hostility towards Islamabad.

White House officials confirms to PTI US will block military aid to Pakistan for now.

Pakistan recently was among the countries to condemn the US for announcing it would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, with the goal of eventually moving the American embassy there. "TIME FOR CHANGE!" Trump tweeted.
