U.S. Provides $255 Million Military Aid To Pakistan, With Conditions Attached


The Trump administration has provided $255 million military aid to Pakistan, with conditions attached – the U.S. State Department saying that Islamabad can access the funds only if it acts against terror groups based in the tribal areas and stop cross-border attacks in Afghanistan.

“The Department notified the Congress on August 30 of our intent to obligate $255 million in FY 2016 Foreign Military Financing for Pakistan. At the same time, the Department is placing a pause on spending those funds and on allocating them to any specific FMF sales contracts,” the Dawn quoted the State Department statement.

The Trump administration notified the Congress on Wednesday that it was putting $255 million into the escrow account that Pakistan can access only if it ‘does more’ to eradicate alleged terrorist safe havens in the tribal areas and stopped cross-border attacks in Afghanistan. Read More…
