"The real challenges in Afghanistan were political infighting, massive corruption, phenomenal growth of drug production and expansion of ungoverned spaces inside Afghanistan full of sanctuaries for multiple worldwide terrorist organizations, posing a serious and direct threat to Afghanistan, its neighbors including Pakistan and the entire region", stated Pakistani Foreign office.

"O$3 ur goal is that we know that they can do more to stop terrorism, and we want them to do that".

Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said that Pakistan was ready to provide all details regarding the funds received from the United States amid US President Donald Trump's critical remarks about Islamabad and its anti-terror policy.

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, confirmed that the US made a decision to deprive Islamabad of American taxpayer-funded assistance, accusing Pakistan of playing a "double game" with America.

A more sophisticated and better-timed message would've put Islamabad further on the back foot at a time when even Palestine is distancing itself from Pakistan's support for ideologically similar Kashmir-bound jihadist groups, which are now rallying against Trump's Jerusalem move. "The president is simply following through on a commitment that he made, because this is a president who does what he says he's going to do", she said.

Pakistani officials strongly rebuked U.S. President Donald Trump for accusing the country of providing a "safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan" and threatening to cut off U.S. aid.

Pakistan has reacted strongly to Mr. Trump's statement, and how it would respond further also remains an open question.

Asif added that all financial aid from the United States had been "properly audited" and that "services [were] rendered".

Thousands of USA and coalition forces in Afghanistan still rely mostly on ground and air routes through neighboring Pakistan for receiving vital supplies.

The report comes after President Trump warned the country earlier this week over its failure to take a tougher stance against terrorism.

Spokesperson Heather Nauert said Pakistan can certainly "do more" and stands to gain from additional cooperation with the United States.

"[Trump's tweet] is a positive message for us, should USA pressure on Pakistan increase", Mohib added. It also said Trump's New Year's Day tweet was "completely incomprehensible".

Pakistan is a U.S. partner in southern Asia. But even if Pakistan did everything the US asked, it's highly uncertain this would yield stability in Afghanistan. Incendiary rhetoric will be matched in kind, especially during an election year.

"A balanced response is needed that would preserve the country's dignity while engaging with the U.S.", Sadiq said. He said Pakistan could fall back on Saudi Arabia and China for military supplies, but it still depends on the US for certain types of high-end equipment.

"The worst outcome is a decline in trust that makes recovery from a downturn much more hard".

As recently as October, Trump credited U.S. "The administration seems to have done a U-turn on this approach so trust in these quiet communication mechanisms will atrophy", he said. "At one time Pakistan had the option to become the ally of Russian Federation but it opted to join hands with the USA instead".

Hussain added that Trump's comments demonstrate "U.S. frustration at not achieving any stability in Afghanistan after more than 16 years of conflict".
