Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, confirmed that the USA chose to deprive Islamabad of American taxpayer-funded assistance, accusing Pakistan of playing a "double game" with America.
"Pakistan has fought the war against terrorism primarily out of its own resources and at a great cost to its economy, and that even more importantly the huge sacrifices made by Pakistan", it said.
"There are clear reasons for this". She told reporters that until Pakistan takes "decisive action" against those groups, security assistance was suspended. "They work with us at times, and they also harbor the terrorists that attack our troops in Afghanistan. That game is not acceptable to this administration".
Reacting to US President Donald Trumps "lies and deceit" comments, Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Thursday said he "is singing Indias tune" and that the Islambad's civil and military leaderships were on the same page. "They have always betrayed us in hard times". "No more!" he tweeted.

Pakistan has cooperated with the US for decades on regional security issues, but Trump is correct that the country does not always follow instructions from the USA when it comes to foreign policy, especially if its own national security is at stake, an expert said. The meeting, which lasted almost three hours, was brought forward by a day and followed an earlier meeting of army generals.
Meanwhile, the Pakistani newspaper Express Tribune reported today - citing sources - that Islamabad "will completely revise its relations policy" with the United States, if "if the USA reduces or suspends aid to Pakistan or places any sanctions".
And Pakistan's Ministry of Defense also slammed Trump's Twitter broadside, highlighting the key role Pakistan has played in the USA -led war on terror.
It rejected as "completely incomprehensible" recent statements and articulation by the American leadership for contradicting "facts manifestly, struck with great insensitivities" at the trust between Pakistan and the USA built over generations. As an example, we pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect.
