ISLAMABAD: In the wake of Donald Trump’s tweet in which he accused Pakistan of “lies and deceit”, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will preside over a meeting of the federal cabinet, discussing the national security, on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, he has also summoned a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) on Wednesday.

The prime minister will chair the huddle to discuss the future course of action following the US president’s scathing statement against Pakistan.

The moot will be attended by foreign minister, interior minister, minister for defence, services chiefs besides, senior civil and military officers, the PM office media wing said in a press release.

Trump tweeted that the US ‘foolishly’ gave aid to Pakistan over the course of 15 years but Islamabad remained deceitful by providing safe havens to ‘terrorists’ from Afghanistan.
