NEW DELHI: The United States has cut down on financial aid being provided to Pakistan by more than $450 million, reducing grants to $4 billion to the terror-torn country, according to a report.
The financial assistance package worth $4.5 billion as per pact was to be provided under the Pakistan Enhanced Partnership Agreement (PEPA) 2010 over a period of five years.
In 2018, the US military dropped the financial support worth $300 million to Pakistan on the back of rising concerns following the country’s failure to check terrorism.
The Fox News earlier reported that Donald Trump headed America had cut $1 billion worth of assistance to Pakistan last year, as the Asian country miserably failed to take on Haqqani terror group.
In July, this year Trump criticised Pakistan during a meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan and informed that the country’s approach has led to a cancellation of US aid amounting to $1.3 billion.
Pakistan has been failing to control terror outfits operational within its territories and the violence towards Muslim minority sect has so far continued.
