Pakistan convenes emergency meet after Trump announces end of USA aide

"Pakistan is ready to publicly provide every detail of the U.S. aid that it has received", Asif said in a strongly worded statement in response to Trump's tweet that accuses Pakistan of providing safe havens to terrorists that the USA is hunting in Afghanistan. "No more!" Trump posted on the micro-blogging site on Monday.

"I haven't seen any change yet in their behavior", U.S. Army Gen. John Nicholson, commander of the NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan, told reporters in November after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defense ministers meeting in Brussels.

He further accused Islamabad of harbouring the terrorists that the USA was hunting in neighbouring Afghanistan.

Speaking to ANI, the Union Minister said, "The Trump administration's decision today has abundantly vindicated India's stand as far as terror is concerned and as far as Pakistan's role in perpetrating terror is concerned".

Hitting back at the USA, the Foreign Office warned against a "malicious campaign" being used to trivialize Pakistan's achievements in the war against terrorism, and noted that "allies do not put each other on notice".

Having hosted a New Year's Eve Party, US President Donald Trump was up early at his winter home in Palm Beach, Florida, and ready to kick off 2018 with a fresh batch of acerbic tweets. "But that will have to change, and that will change immediately".

"The United States does not plan to spend the $255 million in FY 2016 foreign military financing for Pakistan at this time", a National Security Council spokesman said.

Since 2002, the United States has given Islamabad more than $33 billion in aid. "President Trump has put Pakistan on notice".

Before taking office in December 2016, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was characterized by Trump as a "terrific guy" and the US president vowed "to play any role" to address long-standing problems.

Pakistani officials, though, have refused to hand over one of the militants responsible for abducting the family.

However, the New York Times reported Friday that Pakistan had refused to allow USA access to a militant captured in October during the rescue operation for American hostage Caitlan Coleman and her family.
