Another view: Trump's drive-by diplomacy on Pakistan

President Donald Trump during a meeting in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington

Speaking about the US' decision to withhold United States dollars 255 million military aid to Pakistan, Nauert said the decision was taken in August and Pakistan would need to "earn" such assistance through honest action.

'We are ready to publicly provide details of the USA aid that has been received by the country, ' said the minister, adding that Mr Trump was disappointed with the USA defeat in Afghanistan and was accusing Pakistan in retaliation.

"They work with us at times, and they also harbor the terrorists that attack our troops in Afghanistan", she told reporters at the United Nations on Tuesday.

The Trump administration has informed members of Congress that it will withhold security aid to Pakistan over what it described as "double game" by the authorities in Islamabad in countering the terrorism.

Read the whole story from Business Insider. The world will know the truth and the differences between facts and fiction, Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said on Twitter.

"We have said many times that Pakistan has put forth great effort and made great sacrifices in combating terrorism".

Trump first signaled that the USA was reassessing its fractious relations with Pakistan in August, when he accused Islamabad of harboring "agents of chaos".

"There's also a risk that in attempting to compel Pakistan to act against what it views as vital interests, the administration instead leads it to retaliate and reduce cooperation in areas such as access to its air space or supply routes into Afghanistan" he said.

Asif said Trump's tweet was borne out of frustration and that the United States should pursue dialogue with Afghanistan's insurgents rather than military force.

"The president is willing to go to great lengths to stop all funding from Pakistan as they continue to harbour terrorists".

In 2016, the then-Taliban leader Mullah Mansour was killed by a USA drone strike inside Pakistan and in 2011, al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was found and killed by U.S. troops in the Pakistani garrison town of Abbottabad.

In August Trump said Pakistan was a valued ally against the Taliban, Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) which has gained a foothold in Afghanistan and carried out a series of attacks against religious minorities.

Before his departure for the capital, he fired angry tweets at Iran and Pakistan, slamming Islamabad for "lies & deceit" and saying the country had played United States leaders for "fools", a reference to frustrations that Pakistan isn't doing enough to control militants.

The statement said that "despite all unwarranted allegations, Pakistan can not act in haste and will remain committed to playing a constructive role towards an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process, not just for the sake of its own people, but also for the peace and security of the region and worldwide community".

The Pakistan Foreign Office (FO) summoned Hale Monday night. The ministry could not be reached for comment but the US Embassy in Islamabad confirmed on Tuesday that a meeting had taken place.

Minutes after lashing out at Pakistan, Trump turned to Iran, saying that the Islamic Republic "is failing at every level".

The Corps Commanders Conference was held at the General Headquarters and discussed input for the National Security Committee meeting.
