US terms turbulence in ties temporary

US terms turbulence in ties temporary

He also suspended almost $2 billion in security assistance to Pakistan.

The army chief was contacted by Centcom Commander Gen Joseph Votel last week and an unnamed Senator to defuse tensions after Trump's New Year Day hostile tweet accusing Pakistan of lying and being deceitful towards the US.

Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Pakistan has assisted the U.S. in its fight in the war on terrorism, providing the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) with supply routes into landlocked Afghanistan after the United States invasion, Bloomberg reports.

US officials say Pakistan has provided a safe haven for insurgents operating across the border in Afghanistan, often attacking government, civilian, and religious sites, along with USA coaltion forces.

USA and Pakistani officials say neither has happened, and in conversations over the last week the two sides have tried to move past Trump's incendiary rhetoric.

Judge unseals search warrants in mass shooting in Las Vegas
The FBI investigates the scene on the 32nd-floor of the Mandalay Bay on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017, in Las Vegas. The search warrants also covered electronic accounts and social media accounts of Paddock and Danley.

He also said the United States is not planning any action inside Pakistan but is seeking cooperation to recover terrorists who, according to the USA view, are using Pakistan's soil against Kabul.

Bajwa made the comments to Votel earlier this week during a phone call, a spokesman for Pakistan's military said in a statement on Friday.

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

According to the Pakistani military, the Chief of the Army Staff reiterated that Pakistan will not seek resumption of aid but expect honourable recognition of our contributions, sacrifices and unwavering resolve in fight against terrorism for peace and stability in the region. About those, Prime Minister Abbasi actually claimed that his country never even received anywhere near the nearly $1 billion that Trump said that he'll freeze, telling The Guardian that "the aid in the last five years at least has been less than $10m a year".

Khan said Pakistan had nothing to do with the violence.

Stressing that "terror knows to borders", he added that Ankara and Istanbul were as safe as Washington and NY . Ankara explains their move by the "inaccurate information" received from the US State Department.

"Even the USA ambassador", who was summoned for a meeting at Pakistan's Foreign Ministry after Trump's New Year's Day tweets, "didn't have an explanation for the tweet for the first couple of days", the official said.

US troops have been in the country ever since, supporting the government in Kabul's fight against the Taliban and other insurgents, including Islamic State (IS). Bajwa also said Pakistan is being treated badly by the USA "despite decades of cooperation,"Sputnik News reports".

"We've only suspended the aid; we have not reallocated the money", Goldstein said.

"Yes, we would talk", the former cricket star told a press briefing on January 13, referring to Trump, who has accused Pakistan of aiding insurgent groups operating in neighboring Afghanistan.
