Pakistan's top political and military leaders on Thursday offered a stark response to Donald Trump's accusations earlier this week, telling the American president that scapegoating Pakistan will not bring about peace in Afghanistan.
Referring to Donald Trump's assertion of payment of billions of dollars to Pakistan over the years, the committee said instead of any financial or material assistance, there should be understanding and recognition of Pakistan's efforts, contributions and sacrifice of thousands of Pakistanis and over 120 billion U.S. dollars of economic losses. He said Washington could "no longer be silent about Pakistan's safe havens for terrorist organizations". Abbasi described the US' stance as a critical issue and said the federal cabinet had deliberated on it for three hours on Tuesday while the NSC discussed the matter for about four hours.
The danger of nuclear weapons was also mentioned by Trump in his Afghanistan and South Asia policy speech on Monday. "It is time for Pakistan to demonstrate a commitment to civilization, order and peace", Trump said, adding that 20 organizations designated as terrorists by the US operated in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Pakistan, he said, has much to lose by continuing to harbor terrorists. "Against the current backdrop, we appreciate Pakistani efforts in ensuring security as well as anti-terrorism cooperation in the CPEC", she said.
He said that Pakistan had longstanding multidimensional relationship with the US. "For decades, we have been fighting hard to have Washington lean toward India and see Pakistan for what it is", Shivangi said.
Pakistan officials are discussing to resolve the thorny issues, including Pakistan's support for Afghan peace, increasing U.S. ties with Pakistan's arch-rival India, New Delhi's role in Afghanistan and Islamabad's drift toward Beijing after initiation of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the News International reported.
Pakistan estimates there have been 70,000 casualties in militant attacks, including 17,000 killed, since it joined the U.S.
Pakistan on Thursday responded to Washington's accusation that it shelters the Afghan Taliban by saying the USA military itself is failing to eliminate militant sanctuaries inside Afghanistan.
Even as some Indian-Americans lauded Trump's statements on Pakistan and India as radical departures, for others it was more of the same.

Trump's claims of giving billions of dollars in aid to Pakistan were "misleading to the extent that the reimbursements to Pakistan since 2001 only account for part of the cost of ground facilities and air corridors used by the United States for its operations in Afghanistan, rather than any financial aid or assistance", the statement stressed.
