The US military says it has decided to cancel 300 million dollars in aid to Pakistan over alleged failure to take decisive action against militants.

Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Kone Faulkner said Pentagon aims to spend the fund on other urgent priorities if approved by Congress.

He said an amount of 500 million dollars in CSF had already been stripped by Congress from Pakistan earlier this year.
