Pakistan’s befitting response

ISLAMABAD: In the wake of US President Donald Trump’s offensive tweet regarding Pakistan’s role in the war against terrorism in Afghanistan, it is commendable that the Foreign Office, military officials and the prime minister have issued befitting responses to the US. Pakistan has borne much more than the monetary losses that the US repetitively equates with its aid and financial assistance to Pakistan — that too the one which is entirely to keep its operation in Afghanistan ongoing.

Hence, Pakistan must stand firmly against the US pressure as the need to partner with Islamabad is equally important for Washington as well, without it, it is almost impossible for America to achieve its objectives in the region.
