In his latest tweet, Donald Trump chose to target Pakistan and accused the country of ‘lies and deceit.’ It is disappointing that Trump has completely ignored Pakistan’s contributions towards the war on terror. However, this ‘blame game’ is not new. Last year, the American president blamed Pakistan for providing sanctuaries to the ‘agent of chaos, violence and terror.’ All these allegations and threats resulted in the suspension of US security aids to Pakistan.
It goes without saying that Pakistan has contributed a lot towards bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan. It was encouraging to see the country’s strong response against all these allegations.
