In quick response to the reports emerged in the US media that America suspended US$ 800 million aid of Pakistan’s military, Director General Athar Abbas said that Pakistan’s Army could continue its operation without any foreigner aid.
While briefing Pakistan’s military operation, DG ISPR said that Swat and Waziristan operations were carried out without any foreign aid.
White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley said that Pakistan had “taken some steps that have given us reason to pause on some of the aid”.
He said there was a “lot of pain” in Pakistan over the US raid that killed former al Qaeda leader in the country’s main military training camp.
Daley said that the US relationship with Pakistan “must be made to work over time”.
He accepted that Pakistan had been “an important ally in the fight on terrorism. They have been the victim of enormous amounts of terrorism”.
“It is a complicated relationship in a very difficult, complicated part of the world.
“Until we get through these difficulties, we will hold back some of the money that the American taxpayers have committed to give them.” He added.
