The foreign minister’s media talk came after the US announced its decision to cancel $300 million in aid to Pakistan that had been halted over what the former claims is the latter’s failure to take decisive action against militants. Qureshi said that currently Pak-US ties are suspended, adding that US Secretary of State will be visiting Pakistan soon.
