PM Abbasi to chair cabinet meeting on Wednesday over Trump's Twitter attack
ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has called a meeting of federal cabinet on Wednesday following a fresh tirade of US President Donald Trump against Pakistan.

Earlier, the meeting was scheduled for today (Tuesday) and has been postponed till tomorrow due to other engagements of the prime minister.

Media reports suggest the recent statement of Donald Trump and other matters of national security and others would be discussed in the meeting. A future course of action of Pakistan would also be discussed in the meeting after Trump's anti-Pakistan tweet.

The prime minister has also summoned meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) tomorrow (Wednesday) to talk about the matter.

The moot will be attended by by foreign minister, interior minister, minister for defence, Services chiefs besides, senior civil and military officers, the PM office media wing said in a press release.

On Monday, Trump tweeted that the United States had foolishly given Pakistan over $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years.

In his tweet, Trump accused Pakistan of given nothing but lies and deceit thinking US leaders to be fools. “They give safe havens to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!”

 The US, which has provided Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid since 2002, said in August that it was withholding the $255 million until Pakistan did more to crackdown on terrorist groups.

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif also took to the social media site in response, saying Pakistan will soon let the world know the truth and difference between facts and fiction.

In a news conference held on 28 December, Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghaffor stated no organised infrastructure of a terrorist organisation exists in Pakistan. His statement was in reference to the unfounded talk by the US and Afghanistan on the presence of terrorist bases in Pakistan.
