US con­sid­er­ing with­hold­ing USD 255 mn aid to Pak: NYT

The Free Press Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion is strongly con­sid­er­ing with­hold­ing USD 255 mil­lion in aid to Pak­istan, re­flect­ing dis­sat­is­fac­tion with Is­lam­abad's in­ac­tion against ter­ror net­works and due to Pak­istan's in­abil­ity to de­stroy ter­ror safe havens, a me­dia re­port said. The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion's in­ter­nal de­bate over whether to deny Pak­istan the money is a test of whether Trump will de­liver on his threat to pun­ish Is­lam­abad for fail­ing to co­op­er­ate on coun­tert­er­ror­ism op­er­a­tions, the New York Times re­ported.
