US NSA Says Risk Of Pak Nukes In Terrorist’s Hands Reason For Cut In Military Aid


The United States recently cut $300 million in military aid to Pakistan and the Trump administration may have had substantial reasons to do so. According to National Security Advisor John Bolton, one of the major reasons was the risk that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons could fall into the hands of terrorists.

Speaking at an event organised by a Washington-based think-tank – Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies, Bolton outlined why terrorsim within Pakistan is a clear and present threat. “It was before my time, but the Trump administration did not take the decision to cancel a substantial part of the military aid package to Pakistan lightly,” he said. “It was done knowing full well that Pakistan is a nuclear weapons state, and the risk that the government could fall into the hands of terrorists that would get control of those nuclear weapons was particularly serious.” Read more
