The US will not provide $ 300 million to Pakistan. These funds will now go to other purposes. This was reported by the official representative of the US Department of Defense, reports Reuters.
Assistance to Islamabad was aimed to conduct counter-terrorist operations in the country, but the funds were frozen after the promulgation of Donald Trump's new strategy.
"Due to Pakistan's insufficiently resolute actions in support of the strategy in Southeast Asia, the remaining $ 300 million was redistributed," official representative said.
According to him, this money will be allowed for other "extraordinary priority tasks", if Congress approves this.
We recall, in early January 2018, the US State Department announced a decision to suspend the provision of assistance to Pakistan in the security sector, until the country's authorities take decisive action against extremist groups.
Earlier AFP referring to a senior US State Department official reported that the White House will not provide financial assistance to the Palestinians for projects in the Gaza and the West Bank.
According to the informant, financial assistance of more than $ 200 million "will now be directed to priority projects elsewhere." The source noted that the decision was made "on the instructions of the president."
Ukraine-Israel controversies over the status of Israeli settlements including Jerusalem are over. Ukraine’s permanent envoy in the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko said that in his interview with Yevropeiska Pravda.
