VTV.vn - The United States is suspending security assistance to Pakistan over what it sees as a failure by the Pakistani government to adequately clamp down on terror groups within its borders.

The State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that the US will not be delivering military equipment or transfer security related funds to Pakistan unless it is required by law. The value of the assistance is still being determined. A senior of the State Department said it will encompass 255 million US dollars in foreign military financing from the 2016 fiscal year. The aid suspension will include equipment and the transfer of security-related funds, with possible exceptions for U.S. national security reasons. Relations between Pakistan and the U.S. long have been strained, and tensions have only grown since the summer, when the Trump administration announced its policy on Afghanistan and South Asia.
