ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) senior leader Senator Sherry Rehman has deplored the United States’ attitude towards Pakistan, and said that Washington should learn the manners of addressing any Independent State.
“We will not accept any pressure or dictations from anyone,” Sherry Rehman said on Friday in particular reference to the United States which has suspended security assistance to Pakistan for allegedly not abiding by its commitment against terrorism.
Sherry Rehman said that Pakistan knows well that how to deal its matters. She said that the United States cannot get its objectives by giving threats to other States.
Earlier the US State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert while addressing at a news conference in Washington on Thursday unveiled the US’s decision of cutting off any defence-related assistance to Pakistan.
However, Heather Nauert maintained that the suspension was imposed on temporary basis as the United States wants Pakistan to fulfill its obligations and initiate a decisive action against all terrorist groups including Haqqani Network.
The announcement followed the US President Donald Trump’s derogatory Tweet in which he held Pakistan responsible for allowing terrorists to move around and launch attacks on US-led Coalition Forces in adjoining Afghanistan.
But Pakistan entirely rejected Trump’s accusations, and termed them unwarranted and detrimental to Pak-US relations. Pakistan also said that it had been receiving the financial assistance from the United States as a reimbursement for helping the World in eradicating terrorism.
