The freezing of all security assistance to Pakistan comes after President Donald Trump in a New Year's Day tweet accused the country of giving nothing to the U.S. but "lies and deceit" and providing "safe haven" to terrorists in return for United States dollars 33 billion aid over the last 15 years.

The officer who wants to stay anonymous told such a drastic step has been taken against Pakistan since US President Donald Trump is unhappy with Pakistan failing to contain terror groups in the country.

The White House official has clearly disagreed that USA dumped Pakistan along with Pakistan's allegations of U.S. speaking India's language of India.

"We do not believe this is the language of India. But with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?" "So we just disagree with that", said the official who was responding to a question to a statement made by Pakistan's Foreign Minister Khawja Asif who had alleged that the U.S. is "trumpeting India's lies and deceit" and is speaking the "language of Indians". According to a senior state department official, no decision has been taken on the fate of $255 million security assistance to Pakistan for the fiscal year 2017. "At this stage all Fiscal Year 17 CSF have been suspended, so that's the entire amount of Dollars 900 million", Andrews said.

USA officials had indicated on Thursday that the aid suspension would impact the State Department's foreign military financing (FMF) and the Department of Defense's Coalition Support Funds (CSF).

"This was expected, and Pakistan was preparing for that", the analyst told Radio Sputnik, referring to the State Department's announcement earlier this week that Washington would no longer transfer certain military equipment and security-related financial assistance to the Pakistani armed forces.

However, an Agence France Presse report on Friday quoted a "senior administration official" as saying that "approximately two billion worth of equipment and coalition support in play". It's unclear exactly how much money is being suspended total. Nothing's been reprogrammed. We're hopeful that we can lift the suspension and the aid would be able to go forward. "But at this time that's what is suspended", the official said.

"There will be exceptions made".

Macy's in Downtown Miami Closing in 2018
CEO Jeff Gennette says the company's focus has been expanding online, stabilizing its stores and laying the foundation for growth. He said those conversations had already begun prior to Wednesday's announcement by the company.

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi then called a meeting of his National Security Committee which issued a statement noting "deep disappointment... I don't want to get into specific because the implementation is still being worked out but there certainly will be exceptions made when the items are deemed to be in the United States national security interests", the official said.

When asked about other steps like removing Pakistan from its non-NATO ally status, the official responded saying the U.S. has a number of tools in its toolkit. "They have to take decisive steps", she added.

FMF funds enable partner countries to buy "US defence articles, services, and training" and are provided either as a non-repayable grant or on a loan basis.

Interestingly, the U.S. official said that while public pronoucements have focussed on safe havens for thr Haqqani network and Taliban, conversations with Pakistan have also included "concerns about their nuclear program... the ability of anti-India groups like Lashkar-e Tayyiba and Jaish-e Mohammed to fundraise and operate; and Hafiz Saeed, the head of Lashkar-e Tayyiba, who was recently released from house arrest". "If you listen to the Pakistani officials, they say that it won't mean much".

United Airlines spokesman Charlie Hobart says 245 passengers were aboard the flight, which is set to depart Anchorage on Friday. The man, who also tried to stuff his shirt in the toilet, forced the flight crew to divert to Alaska so he could be removed.

"Yusufzai argued that Trump's policy of making policy decisions via "very strong words" on Twitter was one of the causes of the current problems in relations between the two countries, and "one of the reasons why Pakistan is so angry and defiant".
