No US unilateral anti-terror action; Pakistan assured

'Betrayed' Pakistan army chief won't ask for further US aid

The comment comes after President Donald Trump's administration withheld nearly $2 billion in security aid from Pakistan for allegedly failing to take "decisive action" against Taliban militants targeting United States personnel in neighboring Afghanistan, according to the Associated Press.

The Trump administration subsequently suspended almost $2 billion in security assistance to Islamabad until it takes "decisive action" against alleged Afghan militant sanctuaries on Pakistani soil.

"The not contemplating any unilateral action inside Pakistan, but is seeking cooperation to tackle Afghan nationals, who, in the U.S.'s view, use Pakistan's soil against Afghanistan", the spokesman quoted Votel as telling Bajwa.

That's the story for a B.C. hockey player who will find himself skating for Team Canada during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. Poulin appeared in 50 games for the New York Islanders over a five-year span, and now plays in the Austrian Hockey League.

The statement came after Trump froze up to $1.9 billion in funding to Pakistan, in a move created to force its military and intelligence apparatus to halt its support for the Afghan Taliban and other Islamist groups. There has been speculation the US military might undertake drone strikes deep inside Pakistan to target suspected hideouts of the Taliban and the allied Haqqani network.

Pakistan's army chief told a top US general the nation "felt betrayed" by criticism that it was not doing enough to fight terrorism, the Pakistani military said on Friday, after US President Donald Trump accused Pakistan of "lies and deceit". These included that "the problems in ties were temporary, there would be no unilateral action against Pakistan and that the USA did not want a disruption in ties rather it wanted cooperation from Islamabad on areas of its concern".

"We value mutual understanding of interests and concerns that we need to consider that might lead to a positive path forward", Thomas told AFP.

"Pakistan had nothing to do with it", he said, adding that he supported co-operation with the U.S. but not co-opting Pakistan's military into a ground battle with its own people in the tribal regions that border Afghanistan.

This gave rise to a growing choir of voices in Pakistan who are urging the government to suspend the US' transit rights through their territory en route to Afghanistan, effectively dealing a major blow to Trump's mini-surge there, while others have said that Islamabad should massively raise its transit fees instead in order to recoup its losses.

And in 2011, a secret American raid in the military garrison city of Abbottabad killed Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, the architect of the September 11, 2001 attacks on American cities that prompted the US-led invasion to topple the Taliban in Afghanistan.
