Washington DC – US has blocked military aid to Pakistan, which counts 255 million dollars, that means 1,618 crore rupees! However, US has not denied the aid to Pakistan permanently. If Pakistan proves to US’s satisfaction that it is doing enough to take action against terrorism and terrorists from its soil, then US is likely to release the aid once again. US president Donald Trump had said in his first New Year tweet that ‘US has foolishly given aid to Pakistan for last 15 years. Not anymore!’ Following his tweet, US blocked the aid of 255 million dollars today.
On the other hand, China has come to rescue of Pakistan. Chinese Foreign Ministry said today that Pakistan has made sacrifices in fighting the terrorism. China also expressed expectations that US and other counties to note the efforts by Pakistan. However, it’s not clear if China will compensate for the loss of Pakistan by US’s today’s decision.
