Since the fall of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan in late 2001, this region has been the refuge of major jihadist and insurgent groups: Taliban, Al-Qaida, Haqqani, Uzbeks or even Chechens networks. A real nightmare for intelligence services around the world. The Pakistani authorities did not consider that the region as an « imminent » threat as they resumed full control at the end of 2016. In 2017, they set up their headquarters in Miranshah. A suspension of the military assistance granted to Pakistan was announced on January 4 by Washington. President Donald Trump considers the country as a home for terrorists. This suspension falls at the wrong time and is perceived as an injustice by the majority of Pakistanis.
