US forced to praise Pakistan Army role in the region: Report

WASHINGTON - The United States was forced to praise the Pakistan Army role against terrorism in the region.

The US State Department has acknowledged the efforts of Pakistan Army against terrorists, in a report from 2017 on terrorism.

According to the report, al Qaeda and other terrorist organisations have weakened following operations by Pakistan Army in the country’s tribal areas.

It states that terrorism and related incidents in Pakistan have decreased following 2014.

However, the report by US Department of State is contrary to what is stated in policies by the US government, which suspended funding of $300 million to Pakistan after accusing the country of not taking concrete measures to eliminate terrorism.
