US slashing security-related aid

News by:

Apparently, as a demonstration of antipathy towards the incoming government of Pakistan, President Donald Trump initiated a tirade of rhetoric against it. First economic constraints like restrictions on IMF bailout package were recommended and now United States Congress has passed the National Defense Authorisation Act-2019 (NDAA-19) which capped its security-related aid to Pakistan to $150 million, significantly below the historic level of more than $1 billion to $750 million per year.
