U.S. Cuts Aid to Pakistan

            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.
