China Shows Support to Pakistan after Trump's Tweet

Taking note of accusation that in response to 33 billion dollars in aid that had been given to Pakistan over the last 15 years, the USA has got nothing, army's spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted that the aid the country had received from the United States was "reimbursement for support Islamabad gave to the coalition for its fight against Al Qaeda".

U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to cut off billions of dollars in aid to Pakistan, accusing Islamabad of being a safe haven for extremists.

"They (Pakistanis) work with us at times, and they also harbour the terrorists that attack our troops in Afghanistan".

At a top security meeting on Tuesday, Pakistan's civilian and military leadership said Trump's tweet ran counter to meetings held with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis following the August announcement of Trump's Afghan policy.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif dismissed Mr Trump's comments as a political stunt borne out of frustration over U.S. failures in Afghanistan, where Afghan Taleban militants have been gaining territory and carrying out major attacks.

Last week, The New York Times reported that the Trump administration was seriously weighing whether to withhold $255 million (£189m) in already delayed aid to Islamabad over its failure to crack down more effectively on terror groups in Pakistan.

David Hale was summoned by the Pakistan foreign office on Monday to explain Trump's tweet, media said.

"Pak as anti-terror ally has given free to U.S.: land & air communication, military bases & intel cooperation that decimated Al-Qaeda over last 16yrs, but they have given us nothing but invective & mistrust", Khurram Dastgir-Khan wrote on Twitter.

"Pakistan has fought hard and suffered heavily against those terrorists focused on its government, and now we are asking them to focus on the terrorists that are attacking Afghanistan and attacking the coalition", he continued. "Pakistan has played a double game for years". "No more!", Trump said in his tweet.

In the tweet, Trump has also added that Pakistan has provided safety to terrorists.

Donald Trump's tweet has escalated the tension between Pakistan and United States of America.

India has always warned against the US' unquestioning belief in Pakistan's commitment to fighting terrorism.

The Pakistani government has not yet issued a formal response to Haley's statements.
