WASHINTON: They [Pakistan] remain a critical partner in our south asia strategy and there’s been no change to our military-to-military relationship – Pentagon US, Colonel Rob Manning, Director of Defense Press Operation said in a press conference.
Pentagon’s statement came after Trump’s tweet on which Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan tweets back to US President.
US PRESIDENT TWEETS
PM Khan respond on twitter in his tweet.
Trump’s false assertions add insult to the injury Pak has suffered in US WoT in terms of lives lost & destabilised & economic costs. He needs to be informed abt historical facts. Pak has suffered enough fighting US's war. Now we will do what is best for our people & our interests
The PM took to Twitter, further saying: “Instead of making Pakistan a scapegoat for their failures, the US should do a serious assessment of why, despite 140000 NATO troops plus 250,000 Afghan troops & reportedly $1 trillion spent on war in Afghanistan, the Taliban today are stronger than before.”
Meanwhile, Pentagon addressed the position and in a way denied US President’s tweets.
