Trump took tough stand on Pakistan, says Pompeo at Indian summit

DAILY QUDRAT :US President Donald Trump’s administration has taken a tough stand against Pakistan for, what US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo alleged as, its “unacceptable support for terrorism in the region”. “Under President Trump, we have taken our defence cooperation to new heights solidifying our common vision in the Indo-Pacific and has taken a far tougher stance on Pakistan’s unacceptable support for terrorism,” said Pompeo during the India Ideas Summit in Washington on Wednesday. The remarks come days after Washington had announced that it has withdrawn its tax exemption programme for Pakistani diplomats, NDTV reported. The US has already barred Pakistani diplomats working in Washington from travelling outside a 25-kilometre radius around the city without approval. Last year, Donald Trump suspended $1.3 billion annual security aid which was given to Pakistan, condemning it over its inaction on the terrorism front. Focusing on India-US ties under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Pompeo asserted that New Delhi and Washington have a unique opportunity to take advantage of its “special partnership”. “When Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the United States in 2017, President Trump and Modi shared a few hugs and goodwill. PM Modi said Indian interest lies in a strong, prosperous and successful America. In similar ways India’s development and its growing role at the international level are in the United States of America’s interest as well,” he added.
