ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has decided to review the Policy with United States after the recent announcement by the President Donald Trump.

No US diplomat would be allowed to visit Pakistan without the prior permission and the approval of the state authorities.

No unwanted visits or the diplomats would be entertained anymore.

It has also been revealed that Pakistan may also consider cutting down diplomat staff of some countries present in the Islamabad.

Earlier Pakistan postponed a visit by a U.S. acting Assistant Secretary of State, officials said, as small protests broke out against President Donald Trump’s accusations that Islamabad was prolonging the war in Afghanistan.

The visit of Alice Wells, acting assistant Secretary of State for South and Asian Affairs, scheduled for Monday, would have been the first high-profile visit by a U.S. official since Trump’s Afghan policy speech on Aug. 21.

“At the request of the Government of Pakistan, Acting Assistant Secretary Wells’ trip has been postponed until a mutually convenient time,” a U.S. Embassy spokesperson told Reuters in Islamabad on Sunday.

Pakistan’s foreign ministry released a statement with similar wording.

Trump accused Pakistan of harbouring “agents of chaos” and providing safe havens to militant groups.

Pakistani officials responded by saying the U.S. should not “scapegoat” Pakistan and accused the American military of failing to eliminate militant sanctuaries inside Afghanistan.
