U.S. Cuts $300 Million In Aid To Pakistan; Says It’s Failing To Fight Militants

The U.S. announce the suspension of $300 million in funding to Pakistan, citing the government’s failure to fight terrorism. Under the DoD 2018 Appropriations Act, Pakistan will not receive funding for defense operations unless both the Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense certify that the country is “cooperating with the U.S. in 12 counterterrorism efforts.” The cut comes as the economy struggles and the country seeks an IMF bailout of $12 billion
