Will Pakistan pay for its double game on fighting terrorism?
It sounds more like a test of Pakistan's cooperation if fighting Islamic terrorism and particular the Haggani group it hosts. Pakistan is still a strategic route into Afghanistan. It just needs to get its act together in stopping its territory from being used as a sanctuary for terrorist attacks.
- American officials are considering withholding $255 million in aid to punish Islamabad for failing to cooperate on counterterrorism operations.
- The money is a test of whether President Trump will deliver on his threat. A decision could be made in the coming weeks.
