U.S. suspended USD 1.66 billion assistance to Pakistan

23 November 2018 Current Affairs:

The U.S. suspended $1.66 billion in security assistance to Pakistan. This happened days after President Donald Trump said the country does not do “a damn thing” for America alleging that its government had helped al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden hide near its garrison city of Abbottabad.
Ties between the US and Pakistan strained after Trump, while announcing his Afghanistan and South Asia policy in August last year, hit out at Pakistan for providing safe havens to "agents of chaos" that kill Americans in Afghanistan and warned Islamabad that it has "much to lose" by harboring terrorists.
In September, the Trump administration cancelled USD 300 million in military aid to Islamabad for not doing enough against terror groups like the Haqqani Network and the Taliban active on its soil.
