As Donald Trump on Tuesday suspends USD 255 million military aid to Pakistan, News Nation called in some of the prominent defence experts from both sides of the border to discuss what the new US move means for Pakistan.
After the big US move, the world expected Pakistan to finally stop giving refugee to terrorists and walk the talk. However, Pakistan seemed to be not moved a little and continued talking in the same tone.
Pakistan defence expert Tariq Pirzada, who was a part of the debate penal said the move was US’s frustration and Islamabad should not worry about it.
Before announcing the suspension of the annual aid on Tuesday, Donald Trump on New Year’s day launched a scathing attack and accused Pakistan of giving nothing to the US but "lies and deceit" in return for USD 33 billion aid and said Islamabad has provided "safe haven" to terrorists.
"The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools," Trump said in a strongly worded tweet.
"They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!" Trump said in his first tweet of the year.
