Most pointed reaction by Khawaja Asif to Trump tweet

"The (U.S.) President is willing to go to great lengths to stop all funding for Pakistan as they continue to harbour and support terrorism" said Haley. "No more!", tweeted Trump on January 1, 2018.

A day after suspending military aid of $255 million to Pakistan, the United States has accused the country of "playing double games for years". Khawaja Muhammad Asif, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Prof Ahsan Iqbal, Minister for Interior, Mr. Khurram Dastgir, Minister for Defence, General Zubair Mehmood Hayat, Chairman JCSC, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chief of the Army Staff, Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi, Chief of the Naval Staff, Air Chief Marshall SohailAman, Chief of the Air Staff, Mr. Miftah Ismail, Advisor to the Prime Minister on Finance, Revenue and Economic Affairs, Lt. "We expect far more cooperation from Pakistan in the fight against terrorism". It is on that reality that the Pakistani leadership should focus. "We are not hungry for their aid", Zeeshan, a civil servant, told Ruptly, adding that his country does not "need any kind of aid from anyone".

Trump had on Monday tweeted that Pakistan had given "lies & deceit" to United States in return of the aid.

Perhaps, though, it wont come to that, as Washington announced that it has decided cut financial support to Islamabad.

"The administration is withholding $255 million in assistance to Pakistan". "There are clear reasons for this".

Former President Hamid Karzai tweeted, "President @realDonaldTrump tweet on Pakistan's duplicitous position over the past 15 years is vindication that the war on terror is not in bombing Afghan villages and homes but in the sanctuaries beyond Afghanistan".

Pakistan, said the sources, would not accept any demands to do more, and could stop all kinds of cooperation with the U.S. The only response to any "do more" demands will be "no more". Trump initially accused Islamabad of "sheltering terrorists" when he unveiled United States strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia in August 2017.

Zalmay Khalilzad, the former US ambassador to Afghanistan and the United Nations, expressed support for President Donald Trump's tough line against Islamabad and said the administration is likely studying various methods to put pressure on Pakistan for what he called its lack of cooperation in the fight against terrorism.

Pakistan needs to "earn, essentially, the money that we have provided in the past in foreign military assistance", she said. On Tuesday, Pakistan officials summoned USA ambassador David Hale to explain the us position on Trump's tweet, a rare diplomatic move.

Pakistan's embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday. It has much to lose by continuing to harbour terrorists'.

In 2016, Taliban leader Mullah Mansour was killed by a US drone strike inside Pakistan and in 2011, al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was found and killed by USA troops in the garrison town of Abbottabad. Nauert said that despite sustained high-level engagement with Pakistan's government, "the Taliban and Haqqani network continue to find sanctuary inside Pakistan as they plot to destabilize Afghanistan and attack USA and allied personnel".

Days after U.S. president Donald Trump accused Pakistan of "lies and deceit", foreign minister of Pakistan Khawaja Asif responded to Trump in a series of tweets and said: "You ask what we've done?".
