Pakistan cabinet meeting over Trump tweet
Wednesday's Cabinet meeting will discuss Trump's remarks and mull over a strategy to tackle the challenges arising as a result.
Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will chair a meeting of the federal cabinet on Wednesday to discuss strategy in the wake of US President Donald Trump's tweet, in which he accused Pakistan of harbouring terrorists.
"The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools," Trump said in the New Year's day tweet. "They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!"
Wednesday's Cabinet meeting will discuss Trump's remarks and mull over a strategy to tackle the challenges arising as a result. The national as well as regional security situation, economic and social affairs would also be brought under discussion in the meeting, the Geo News said.
Earlier on Tuesday, the National Security Committee (NSC) met over Trump's anti-Pakistan statement. Expressing disappointment over the remarks, the committee decided not to take measures in haste in reply to US accusations.
