NEW DELHI: India on Monday welcomed the US decision to suspend $800 million worth of military aid to Pakistan.

“It is not desirable that this region had to be heavily armed by the US, which will upset the equilibrium in the region itself,” External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said, according the domestic PTI news agency.

“To that extent, India welcomes this step,” he said.

The United States is withholding some $800 million in aid to Pakistan, almost a third of the $2.7 billion in security assistance it provides each year to Islamabad.

Last month, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Washington would slow down US military aid to Pakistan unless it took unspecified steps to help the United States.

William Daley, Obama’s chief of staff, confirmed that the administration was suspending and, in certain cases, canceling some $800 million of military aid.

The suspended aid includes about $300 million to reimburse Pakistan for some of the costs of deploying more than 100,000 soldiers along the Afghan border, according to the New York Times, which broke the story late Saturday.

In addition, said the Times, hundreds of millions of dollars in training assistance and military hardware are also being withheld.

Correction: An earlier headline of this article did not mention the suspension of ‘military’-specific aid to Pakistan. The correction has been made.

Is the suspension of US military aid to Pakistan a positive or negative development?

    Rather than the suspension it should be stoppage of the Military Aid. India is not against the civilian aid and other helping hand extended to IDP’s by the US.

    Please change the title as “India welcomes US suspending military aid to Pakistan”

    Well, I think all Pakistanis should welcome this suspension also, considering what this aid had truely ‘cost’ us in terms of towing the American line.
    Krishna seems to be a well-wisher of Pakistan to the extent of welcoming this suspension, but only if his reasons for it were right. ‘heavily arming the region?’, that sounds diabolical considering it was Mr. Krishna’s country that plunged this region into nuclear armaments…No? I’m sick to the gut with Indian government’s hypocrisy. Krishna needs to go back to history books on South Asian armament & militarization.
    The change in balance of power is fine if it moves in India’s favor and not so otherwise…Please stop sounding like as if you’re taking a moral position in foreign affairs and are very concerned about weaponization. In any case you have 4 times more weapons than us in relative terms!
    Nevertheless, I’ll be happy to wrest back some level of policy-making powers from vested interests with this suspension of ‘unholy aid’.

They waste billions on military purchases to terrorise occupied Kashmir and this Indian guy talks about the balance of military in South Asia? Pakistan is better off without any aid because it forces the nation to be self sufficient like when it developed fighter planes and nuclear weapons to defend itself from an aggressive India which is setting up terrorist camps in Afghanistan. In the long run we know the West will just use Pakistan and abandon it like what happended when Pak defeated the Soviets in Afghanistan and was left to clean up the mess. Now I hope all of the leadership wakes up to the reality that we need to take care of ourselves only.

Now I want to ask the Pakistanis that which country in the world would like it’s adversary getting deadly weapons for free all in the name of fighting terror? What has F-16’s and Harpoon Missiles have to do with terror? If Pakistan buys all these weapons, like India does, then we will have no problem. But it really pinches that India buys necessary weapons by paying hard cash only to see Pakistan getting those weapons as a part of military aid. Develop your economy, pay for your weapons and then only “Expensive Toys will look good in the hands of your Military Boys”.

    I am not surprised to see the Indian reaction to America’s suspension of Pakistan’s military assistance. India has always been opposing such steps which were aimed at improving Pakistan’s defensive capability. Instead of resolving the mutual disputes through dialogue, India has always opted a policy of keeping Pakistan a weak and destabilized state, so that they can dictate their terms for conflict resolution. This is what they are doing to Pakistan from Afghan soil. Their efforts to secure a position in post war Afghanistan are also aimed at triggering separatist movements in KPK and Baluchistan. There should be no doubt in any body’s mind that India is a hegemonic power and in spite of their recent statements that they would like to turn a new chapter in India-Pakistan relations, India would like to see Pakistan as its client state. As a Pakistani I am quite confident that suspension of US aid is not the end of the world. There are innumerable sources of weapons in the world and Pakistan should work hard to reduce its dependence on United States. The US has time and again proved to be an unreliable partner. The brighter side of this development is that the US influence on Pakistan Army will now be reduced considerably. Pakistan should now fix its own priorities and conduct its military operations purely in accordance with its own national security interests.

As far as ruling Pakistan, you tried that in 4 bloody wars but failed miserably!. And you will always fail no matter how many wars and crimes you inflict upon Pakistan. You will always fail, even when you include other countries and their weapons to empower you with a big fat equilibrium power to wage wars of destabalising Pakistan. Pakistan will always be Pakistan.

    I think i know why indian officials are giving such like statements . actually indians were taken by surprise by US decision of getting out of Afghanistan by 2014 and without putting some watch-DOG ( with this i only means INDIA) there. Indians have heavily invested there and you know very well why (Chankya policy) open secret – to destabilize Pakistan which they are doing quite good by now by providing all out support to BLA and all other lawless elements.
    Secondly the great indian ambition to subdue Pakistan and bring it to its terms has not been successful even US decline to support them in mumbai issue – INJURED PRIDE – ooops

    some said why Pakistan require F 16s for this war I think some simply clueless person has given such remarks otherwise every one knows and even it has been internationally now recognized that how much effective an air support is when it is equipped with precession guided weapons even US is doing same but with Drone ( again an aircraft but without an on board pilot)

    some indians said they buy and we BEG weapons i really feel pity on them and i suggest that they should immediately stop watching their news channels because they are nothing but an other form of BOLLYWOOD entertainment……. FIRST ………. since quite long india has actually not bought any new weapon for their forces ……. YES its true all are in PAPERS nothing actually coming indian way till quite some time time ……..SECONDLY ……… all such like deals are kind of loans even indians are begging for latest weapons which are still out of their reach …………. so chill

    I am at a loss of understanding as to how mentioning all the north-eastern states of India corroborates your “misleading hypothesis” that India is unstable.
    If by some vague phantasmagorical delusion you are assuming there is instability in all these states and Punjab: I will only say that I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.
    Stop reading “propaganda material distributed by charlatan defense analysts” which only hinders a person’s intellectual progress…

    Those are doubtless the names of States but they represent separatist movements over there (if you can recall?). Those places, some if not all, are still volatile (and no I am not fond of propaganda material). So saying that India is very stable ain’t a right statement. I just wanted to point out the problems in India that brings instability. Kashmir and Assam are still a challenge, ain’t it?

    And it ain’t a battle of wits! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to learn history.

In the past we have resolved the separatist movement in Assam, Tamilnadu, Mizoram, Punjab, Nagaland etc. People of these states are in the mainstream and prospering in 21st Century India. Actually, states like Tamilnadu and Punjab is leader of economic developent in the country and whole india is proud of them.

I don’t think you would have been impressed if US and other global entities stop the civilian aid to Pakistan or any region who needs external assistance for civic development. However military aid should only be provided to people who really need them for a cause. Pakistan is not ready to curb the Islamic terrorists to the degree required , rather they are always interested in using the evil force as one of their own strategic interests and hence they don’t need military aid any more.

    That, madam (or Ms or Mohtarma, pick one), is the whole crux of the situation. If there were some assurance that all this aid would be used for the purposes US meant it to be for, namely to fight terrorism, India would not only have not objected to it but indeed welcomed it. But, if the aid so received is diverted to your eastern border, that means we are directly threatened. Such kind of breach of faith and trust has always been the modus operandi of Pakistanis, even recently with your own benefactor the US of A..

    well well it seems india is harbouring alot more terrorists than it is willing to admit to… shal we on that note send a list of top 10militants to u?…… and NO india stil doesnt get a say no matter how much u wish to stomp ur feet and shout.. india doesnt get a say.. india… needs to focus on strengtheing her intelligence and catching terrorists in her country… any take active measures taken towards that objective i shall ‘welcome’ as a pakistani ;)

    with regards to suspension of aid.. get the facts straight.. these are expenses incurred for the over 1000 troups deployed to secure our northern border with afghanistan.. expenses already incured.. the US just doesnt approve of pakistan fnally taking measures to stand on its own two feet and tackle the situation while minimising US inteferrence .. an d why should the US interfere….. if Pakistan takes all the right steps on its own theres no need for the US to interfere.. plain and simple

    @Sam:
    For your info “Iittle Indian world” does not revolve around Pakistan, its called observance as to what one’s neighbour with dubous reputation is up to !!!
    But perhaps that’s bit hard to grasp, for Big Pakistani mind, as its stuck in world of Psychedelic Dellusion, about its Grandness from within the Cocoon !!
    Come on Sam, learn to face the reality, it helps and we all know that you are smart.

    @Hedgefunder:

    spoken like a true stalker “not obsessed.. just observing”…

    fact of the matter is India loves to shove her nose where it doesnt belong… pakistan (even if i does) has no right to comment on indian relations with other countries.. thats indias concern… if its a thret to pakistan yes itll be of concern to us.. but when if its of no thret to us it doesnt matter.. as in this case which is of no relevance to india..

    we faught a war because truth be told we had no other option.. we incurred costs our economy couldnt support.. for that we were committed aid.. is the US right in holding it back.. NO!.. am i glad its holding back on it? YES… because the way i see it pakistan wil only be able to stabalize wen all unwated foreign elemints are miimized and pakistan takes control of the situation herself… and whilst iv been highly critical of the army in the past.. they are finally making an effort now…
