U.S. cancels Pakistan aid over militant record.

by Times TV

The U.S. military is canceling $300 million in aid to Pakistan over what it calls Islamabad's failure to tackle militant groups.

A Pentagon spokesman said the funds will be driven elsewhere if Congress approves.

It adds to a broader cut to security aid this year when President Donald Trump accused Pakistan of paying back past aid with 'nothing but lies and deceit'.

However, the latest move comes just days before a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to meet new Prime Minister Imran Khan.
