Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Monday called on Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi after US President Donald Trump accused Islamabad of giving nothing to the US but "lies and deceit", a media report said.

"The meeting held a detailed review of the Trump's statement," the Geo TV reported, citing its sources.

It said the two leaders also discussed the country's foreign policy.

"We will respond to President Trump's tweet shortly inshallah... Will let the world know the truth... difference between facts and fiction..," Asif tweeted.

"We have already refused to the US mantra of 'do more' for it (US). We have told the Trump administration that we will not do 'no more' for it. The 'do more' does not hold any importance.

"Pakistan is ready to publicly provide every detail of the US aid that it has received over the last 15 years," the minister said.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Peoples Party Senator Sherry Rehman tweeted: "Coalition support funds has never been counted as AID in any accounting by Pakistan, nor will it be seen as part of assistance. It was compensation on expenses incurred on joint action on border. Other 'Aid' we should indeed talk about, because Pakistan never charged for NATO traffic".
