The United States has suspended $1.66 billion security aid to Pakistan following President Donald Trump’s directive, the Pentagon said on Tuesday.

The development took place days after Trump accused Pakistan of not doing enough against combatting terrorism.

“$1.66 billion of security assistance to Pakistan is suspended,” Col. Rob Manning, spokesman of the Department of Defence, told media in an e-mail response to questions.
