US may suspend some military aid to Pakistan

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-07-10

The US could suspend hundreds of millions of dollars worth of military aid to Pakistan unless the latter takes tougher action against the Taliban, The New York Times has reported.

AP - A report says the U.S. could suspend hundreds of millions in military aid to Pakistan unless the two countries’ fractured relations improve and Pakistan pursues militant groups more aggressively.
 
The New York Times is reporting that the Obama administration is upset with Pakistan for expelling American military trainers and wants tougher action against the Taliban and others fighting American soldiers in Afghanistan.
 
It cites anonymous officials saying up to $800 million in military assistance and equipment could be affected. They say equipment deliveries and aid would probably resume if U.S.-Pakistani relations improve and Pakistan proves its commitment to counterterrorism efforts.
 
Tensions between the countries have surged since U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in May.
 
The White House said it didn’t have an immediate comment on the report.
