Pakistan’s top civil-military leaders join heads over Trump’s tweet

The NSC meeting has been called to discuss US President Donald Trump’s latest statement alleging Pakistan of “lies and deceit”.

In a 50 word tweet, the US President stated: “The US has foolishly given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!”
