Has Pentagon disassociated itself from Donald Trump remarks against Pakistan?
WASHINGTON - Following the recent tirade of the United States (US) President Donald Trump against Pakistan, the Pentagon has responded over the Pakistan US ties.
Pentagon has elucidated that no change has taken place in the Pak-US military relations.
According to details, responding to a question related to the series of tweets from Trump and his interview to Fox News, in which he alleged Pakistan for doing nothing for the US, Colonel Rob Manning, Director of Defense Press Operations, said, “They [Pakistan] remain a critical partner in our South Asia strategy and there’s been no change to our military-to-military relationship with Pakistan.”
Speaking to media men during an off-camera news conference, the official stressed, “The US and Pakistan have a strong mutual interests in the region. As you know, they are critical (and) vital to the South Asia strategy and including the facilitation of a peace process that would lead to a stable and peaceful Afghanistan.”
In his latest tweet the US president alleged that America paid Pakistan billions of dollars and they never told them that Osama was living there.
“Of course we should have captured Osama Bin Laden long before we did. I pointed him out in my book just BEFORE the attack on the World Trade Center. President Clinton famously missed his shot. We paid Pakistan Billions of Dollars & they never told us he was living there. Fools!
