Pakistan PM summons cabinet, security meet over Trump tweet

Trump Accuses Pakistan Of 'Lies And Deceit,' Threatens To Pull Billions In Aid

Analysts pointed out that in October Trump had tweeted that the administration was "starting to develop a much better relationship with Pakistan and its leaders". He added that USA operations in Afghanistan were being affected because Islamabad provided "safe haven" to terrorists.

"The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools".

Asif said Trump's tweet was borne out of frustration and that the United States should pursue dialogue with Afghanistan's insurgents rather than military force. He also repented for financially helping Pakistan with the provision of $33 billion in last decade and half.

The Pakistan Foreign Office summoned US Ambassador on Monday and lodged its protest against US President Donald Trump.

After the September 11, 2001 terror attacks in the United States, Washington forged a strategic alliance with Islamabad to help in its fight against militancy.

Balochistan is the largest province in Pakistan, but remains least developed.

Washington and Kabul have long accused Islamabad of supporting militant groups including the Taliban, believed to have links to Pakistan's shadowy military establishment who aim to use them as a regional bulwark against arch-nemesis India.

He said "For too long Pakistan has provided safe haven to the Taliban and many terrorist organizations, but those days are over".

"We have started the construction of forts and posts on the Afghan border for effective border management - what more does the USA and Afghanistan want from us?"

However the Pakistani military launched an operation there in 2014, and now insists it has eradicated all safe havens in the country. "No more!" Trump said in his scathing remark. "No more!" Trump said in a Twitter post on Monday.

Pakistan's Times of Islamabad reported that the meeting will be led by Abbasi. "No more!" he added.

The latest move comes after the United States has been denied access to a member of the Taliban-linked Haqqani network who is in Pakistan's custody.

It called Donald Trump's statement "provocative" and added that "Pakistan had made it clear the country was not prepared to take dictation from anyone anymore".
