Pakistan a 'backstabbing nation', tweets US congressman

SHARE:

A US lawmaker has called Pakistan a “backstabbing nation” on Monday in a tweet lauding the US defence secretary’s decision to withhold $50 million of the coalition support fund (CSF) to the country.

Congressman Ted Poe from Texas, known as an Indian lobbyist, published a note on Twitter that said he is “pleased to see the administration bring our misguided policy on Pakistan into review and am encouraged by this step revoking funding to our Benedict Arnold Ally.”




Poe was referring to General Arnold, who had switched sides during the American Revolutionary War. Poe is chair of the terrorism, nonproliferation, and trade’ subcommittee of the US’s foreign affairs committee.

The US stopped the funds after Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis told Congress during a hearing that he could not verify that Pakistan had made enough efforts against Taliban and the Haqqani group.

In response, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States Aizaz Chaudhry had emphasised that the funds in questions were a reimbursement of the expenses incurred by Pakistan towards achieving “our common objectives in the fight against terrorism” and were not assistance.

The US had allotted $900 million to Pakistan under the CSF, of which $550 million had already been reimbursed. Of the remaining amount, $300 million had been withdrawn by Congress as part of a broader appropriations act.

Pentagon spokesman Adam Stump, however, said that withholding of funds did not reduce the significance of the sacrifices that the Pakistani military had undertaken over previous years.
