It would not be the first time this has happened, and the Americans had to create what is called "The Northern Route" to supply their forces in Afghanistan.
The legislation will end all aid to Pakistan, going beyond the suspension of security-related assistance the Trump administration announced hours later. Trump's tweet on the first day of 2018 gave a political push from the White House.
Though there was no immediate reaction from Islamabad to the USA move, defence minister Khurram Dastagir said on Thursday that, "we need to have a holistic review of the entire situation". Yet the Taliban and the Haqqani network, both designated terrorist organisations by America, enjoy safe havens in Pakistan.
According to a report of the Congressional Research Service, FMF to Pakistan for fiscal year 2016 and 2017 was $255 million each.
Lalu sentenced to 3.5 years in jail in fodder scam case
There were 34 accused in the case, out of which 11 died during the trial, while one turned CBI approver and admitted to the crime. Former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Yadav has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years in jail in connection with the fodder scam .
The deadline for that is 30 September this year. "They have to take decisive steps", she added. Out of this, $400 million was eligible for Haqqani Network-related certification requirements that can not be waived by the administration. This was not likely to have been given as the USA had not issued that certification for CSF funds for 2015 and 2016 either. We prefer to cooperate with Pakistan. Pentagon spokesperson Commander Patrick Evans said that the entire $900 million would be frozen.
About President Donald Trump's comprehensive South Asia strategy for regional diplomacy announced in August past year, the official said, "It looked at India-Pakistan relations, encouraging better ties between the two countries and reducing tensions between them". "So we just disagree with that", said the official who was responding to a question to a statement made by Pakistan's Foreign Minister Khawja Asif who had alleged that the U.S. is "trumpeting India's lies and deceit" and is speaking the "language of Indians".
The Trump administration announced Thursday it was suspending - not ending, as proposed by Paul, or cancelling - almost all security related assistance to Pakistan, that includes foreign military financing, United States financial assistance to recipient country to buy USA military hardware, and Coalition Support Fund, a reimbursement for expenses incurred in support of IS-led global coalition forces in Afghanistan. Pakistan's Foreign Ministry, however, said it will stayed engaged with Washington to address the threat of terrorism. "We are determined to continue to do all it takes to secure the lives of our citizens and broader stability in the region", said the foreign office statement. "What matters I think to the Pakistanis is that it is the symbolism of doing this that it represents a deterioration of our relationship that they care about a great deal", the official said. In February 2016, he had introduced a joint resolution in the senate opposing an Obama administration's proposal to sell eight F-16 fighter jets to Pakistan at costs subsidized by United States taxpayers.
