    Exclusive: Pentagon cancels aid to Pakistan over record on militants
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKCN1LH3TA

    Experts on the Afghan conflict, America’s longest war, argue that militant safe havens in Pakistan have allowed Taliban-linked insurgents in Afghanistan a place to plot deadly strikes and regroup after ground offensives.
    Reuters reported in August that the Trump administration has quietly started cutting scores of Pakistani officers from coveted training and educational programs that have been a hallmark of bilateral military relations for more than a decade.

    The Pentagon made similar determinations on CSF in the past but this year’s move could get more attention from Islamabad, and its new prime minister, Imran Khan, at a time when its economy is struggling.

    Pakistan’s foreign exchange reserves have plummeted over the past year and it will soon decide on whether to seek a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) or friendly nations such as China.

    “They are squeezing them when they know that they’re vulnerable and it is probably a signal about what to expect should Pakistan come to the IMF for a loan,” Lalwani said. The United States has the largest share of votes at the IMF.

    Khan, who once suggested he might order the shooting down of U.S. drones if they entered Pakistani airspace, has opposed the United States’ open-ended presence in Afghanistan. In his victory speech, he said he wanted “mutually beneficial” relations with Washington.

    Two items. One regarding loans, the other security issues.

    The Christian woman,Asia Bibi,is waiting the outcome of her final appeal in the Supreme court today.
    She was convicted of blasphemy in 2010 and if her appeal fails she will most likely be sentenced to death.
    Imran Khan fully supported the law when campaigning,so it does not look good for her,what a backward country.

    I see Pakistan is going to be begging for a few billion in Bali next week.

    I wonder how much of that will end up in Imran's skyrocket?
