On Monday, Trump wrote on his Twitter page that the United States had allocated millions of dollars in aid to Pakistan, while the latter had not contributed to countering terrorism and provided safe harbor to terrorists from Afghanistan. He also said in his first tweet of the year that Islamabad has provided "safe haven" to terrorists - a position India has always been conveying to the global community in nearly all the available diplomatic forums.

And Pakistan's prime minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, who assumed the premiership just five months ago, has called a meeting of his National Security Committee to discuss a future course of action with the U.S.

And in the response to Donald Trump's tweet against Pakistan the foreign minister of Pakistan tweeted that we will respond to him shortly and will let the world know the truth and facts.

In an interview to Geo television, Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said Pakistan is ready to publicly give an account of "every detail" of United States aid it has received, saying it is already doing all it could to combat terrorism within its borders.

The Trump administration has been withholding $255 in military aid since August over what it says is Pakistan's failure to crack down on terrorists.

The Bears also have two former Ducks, Hroniss Grasu and Kyle Long, on the offensive line. The Bears hired Notre Dame's Harry Hiestand as offensive line coach.


David Hale was summoned by the Pakistan foreign office on Monday to explain Trump's tweet, media said.

"The Trump administration's decision today has abundantly vindicated India's stand as far as terror is concerned and as far as Pakistan's role in perpetrating terror is concerned", the Union Minister said.

Defence Minister Khurram Dastagir said Pakistan had extended unprecedented cooperation to the United States to eliminate Al Qaeda from its soil and Afghanistan besides fighting the war against terror. The US has accused Pakistan of supporting the Haqqani network militants and has threatened to cut aid if it continues to turn a blind eye to the group. "No more!", Trump said in his tweet.

"Pakistan does not have any safe havens for terrorists", he said.

The Pakistan military last week warned Washington against any unilateral military action on its soil, saying us allegations of terrorist sanctuaries in the country are "unfounded" and "no more valid" because "indiscriminate" security operations have targeted all terrorist groups.
