Pakistan does not deserve even a dollar from the US until it stops harbouring terrorists: Nikki Haley

US President Trump had earlier slammed Pakistan for "not doing a damn thing" for the US in exchange of all the aid it has received.

In an interview to The Atlantic, US ambassador to UN Nikki Haley reiterated the stand of Trump administration over Pakistan and said that it does not deserve even a dollar from the US unless it stops harbouring and sponsoring terrorism.

Talking about relations between foreign assistance that the United States gives to countries with those countries’ voting patterns at the United Nations, Nikki said President Trump does not want to continue aid to countries, who don’t serve USA’s interests.

“Look at Pakistan,” Nikki said. “Giving them over a billion dollars, and they continue to harbour terrorists that turn around and kill our soldiers. That’s never okay. We shouldn’t even give them a dollar until they correct it.”

Nikki Haley recently in a tweet expressed contempt for Palestinian Authority’s continued aid to families of imprisoned terrorists in Isreali jail after 7 Israeli were reportedly wounded in a terrorist attack in northern Jureselum’s Samaria, including a pregnant woman on Sunday. Nikki in a reply to Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon said that funding to terrorists from PA needs to stop. According to reports, the interim government of Palestinian funds families of incarcerated terrorists lodged in Israeli prisons.

Both USA and Israel have asked PA to stop the practice of funding terrorist and emboldening their acts. But the President of Palestinian National authority has always maintained that  “families of the martyrs will continue to receive their allowances in full.”

Trump administration has repeatedly alleged Pakistan of harbouring terrorists on its soil and assaulting US military and other countries. Recently, friction between two nations had led the Pentagon to severe monetary help of $1.66 billion in security assistance to Pakistan. The decision had come days after Trump’s statements slamming Pakistan of not doing ‘a damn thing’ for the US, alleging that its government had helped Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden to hide near its garrison city of Abbottabad. The USA also alleges that Pakistan plays a double role while dealing with the Afghan Taliban.

The USA has always alleged that Pakistan acts as a voluntary host for Taliban insurgents and have turned a blind eye towards the Haqqani network, active on Pakistan and Afghanistan’s shared borders.

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis had advised Pakistan that it should support peace initiatives of PM Modi and the United Nations to maintain peace in south-east Asia. This was in relation to letter the US had written to Pakistan soliciting its support for negotiating talks with the Afghan Taliban.

Nikki Haley is the US ambassador to UN ’till January. She has earlier served as the governor of South Carolina. She announced resignation in October. She is a popular Republican politician, with speculations that she will run for Presidency of the USA in 2020.
