Pakistan paid heavy cost of blood and treasure. DG ISPR

Pakistan Army spokesman DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor rejected the American allegations and accusations.  The DG ISPR, in response to the US move, in which it suspended security assistance to Pakistan, said that the suspension of aid would impact bilateral security cooperation between the two nations and regional peace. “Suspension of security assistance will not affect Pakistan’s resolve to fight terrorism; however, it for sure will have an impact on Pakistan-US security cooperation and efforts towards regional peace,” Maintaining that Pakistan never fought for money but for peace,  General Asif Ghafoor said: "The Pakistan Army has indiscriminately targeted terrorists, including the Haqqani network at a “heavy cost of blood and treasure.”

Amid the US allegations, Washington also announced that it was withholding $255 million in aid to Islamabad. "Today we can confirm that we are suspending security assistance only to Pakistan at this time," State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said on Friday, adding that Pakistan could receive the suspended funding if it takes decisive actions against the Haqqani Network and Afghan Taliban.
