Pakistan continues to harbour terrorists, US should not give it one dollar:Haley

New York: US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, on Monday, said that Pakistan should not be given 'even a dollar' as it continues to harbour terrorists, who 'turn around and kill American soldiers'. Talking to a US magazine- The Atlantic, Haley said that funds released to Pakistan should be based on the goodwill displayed by that nation, rather than, funding and expecting goodwill in return."The one example I'll give you is, look at Pakistan. 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. Use the billion dollars. That's not a small amount of change," she said.Haley said that Islamabad should be told that "you have to do these things before we will even start to help you with your military or start to help you on counterterrorism". "I don't think you should blindly give it and then expect goodwill. You have to ask for goodwill and then give it when you see good things happen," she said.Haley's comments come days after a war-of-words between US President Donald Trump and Pakiatsn's newly appointed Prime Minister Imran Khan. While Trump, in a television interview, had claimed that Pakistan does not do "a damn thing" for the US, he had also referred to the presence of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan's Abbottabad.  "you know, living... think of this... living in Pakistan, beautifully in Pakistan in what I guess they considered a nice mansion, I don't know, I've seen nicer... But living in Pakistan right next to the military academy, everybody in Pakistan knew he was there," Trump had said.In September, the Trump administration had suspended a $300 million military aid to Pakistan citing inaction over terrorism. Further, Trump, in a letter to Khan had also sought Pakistan's cooperation in bringing peace to Afghanistan. In response, Khan had said that Pakistan was no longer America's 'hired gun'.
