Relations between the US and Pakistan have been strained since President Donald Trump announced his policy in Afghanistan and South Asia in August 2016, hit in Pakistan for providing safe havens for “chaos agents” who are killing Americans in Afghanistan and warning Islamabad of having “Much lose” because of the hiding of terrorists.
In November last year, the Pentagon announced it had suspended 1.66 billion security assistance to Pakistan after Trump had directed it.
On November 19, Trump said Pakistan did not do the “damn thing” for the United States while claiming that its government helped al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden hide near his garrison town Abbotabad.
In September 2017, the Trump administration canceled 300 million military aid to Islamabad for failing to do enough against terrorist groups such as the Haqqani network and the Taliban who are active on its soil.
