Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that there is no threat of Washington undertaking military action against Pakistan.
During his talk with the reporters, Abbasi brushed aside the impression of threat of US military action against Pakistan.
His comments come in the wake of growing tense relations between Pakistan and the United States following Trump’s New Year’s Day tweet in which he accused Pakistan of taking $33 billion in aid and giving only “deceit and lies” in return while harboring Afghan insurgents. Days later, the US had suspended military aid to Pakistan.
Infuriated by Trump’s tweet, Pakistan had accused Washington of making it a scapegoat for its failure to bring peace to Afghanistan.
If the country had been under democratic rule at the time of the 9/11 attacks in New York, the situation today would have been very different, the premier said on Monday while speaking to parliamentary reporters.
