Pakistani Defense Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan went so far as to tell reporters this week that Pakistan would cease "a wide field of intelligence cooperation and defense cooperation" with the U.S. He did not elaborate.

"Pakistan is fully aware of USA concerns on activities of Afghan nationals in Pakistan and we are already undertaking multiple actions through Operation Raddul Fasaad to deny any residual capacity to terrorists of all hue and colour for which return of Afghan refugees is an essential prerequisite", Gen Bajwa was quoted as having told Gen Votel.

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. Also in question is nearly $1 billion of USA military equipment that has allowed Pakistan access to advanced military technology.
