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.
