US Aid Cuts to Pakistan Could Be Up to $2 Billion

The meeting came amid the United States move to cut off the military aid to Pakistan, as it has not taken "necessary steps" to curb terrorism.

"That is what approximately USD2 billion worth of equipment and the Coalition support funding that that is in play", the official said.

The Trump administration could be endangering the lives of USA troops in the Middle East with its decision to cut almost all American security aid to Pakistan, experts say.

Asif's blunt remarks contradict the stand taken by the Pakistan Army on US President Donald Trump's latest accusation that Pakistan has given the US nothing but lies and deceit thinking of US leaders as fools and now is the time to stop the financial aid to Pakistan. "They may say it's a surprise, but what is no surprise is that the President has expressed his concerns, Secretary Tillerson has expressed his concerns, as has Secretary Mattis, and I imagine many other government officials having those conversations with Pakistan", Nauert said.

After more than a decade of simmering U.S. anger at links between Islamabad and the Taliban and the Haqqani network-a Taliban affiliate-President Donald Trump is trying to draw a line in the sand. Just how much aid is to be suspended is not known precisely but it would all be military and no civilian aid is to be curtailed. "No funds have been reprogrammed, and we are hopeful of future cooperation from Pakistan that would allow the suspension to be lifted", the spokesperson added. "But at this time that's what is suspended", the official said.

According to the White House, the administration is still working on the "exceptions to be made" in this suspension. I think you can assume that you know things that are in the United States national security, things that might be related to nuclear issues, end use monitoring of equipment.

Comedian Jerry Van Dyke Dies at 86
Van Dyke's wife, Shirley, told the site he passed away Friday, two years after a debilitating auto accident injured them both. She noted that a auto accident both were involved in two years ago provided deteriorated health in the aftermath.

"That has been a real advantage to the Taliban and the Haqqani network that they can find rest and respite in Pakistan during the winter months".

The US has "a number of tools in its toolkit" and can "take unilateral" steps. But it could end up backfiring by diminishing the cooperation between the USA and Pakistan to combat terror groups in the region. "But right now, we're frustrated and we want to indicate to Pakistan our seriousness about the issue of dealing with safe havens", the official said. "The US and Pakistan relationship has been a troubled one", he had said in a statement. With the gloves now off it must be noted that none of the monies earmarked for coalition support funding in the 2017 fiscal year has been paid to Pakistan - what you never had you do not miss. Citing the presidential tweet, Paul said, "I've been fighting to end Pakistani aid for years".
