Pakistan fights anti-terror war on its own resources
The Pakistani foreign ministry said Friday that the country fights the war against terrorism on its own resources, apparently in a reaction to the security aid suspension announced by the United States.

Washington announced on Thursday that it is suspending the transfer of military equipment and security-related funds to Pakistan, according to the State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert.

Pakistan is engaged with the US Administration on the issue of security cooperation and await further details, the ministry said in a statement.

Impacts of the US decision on pursuit of common objectives is also likely to emerge more clearly in due course of time. It, however, needs to be appreciated that Pakistan has fought the war against terrorism largely from its own resources which has cost over 120 billion US dollars in 15 years, said the statement.

It added that Pakistan is "determined to continue to do all it takes to secure the lives of our citizens and broader stability in the region."

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Tuesday that Washington would withhold 255 million dollars in assistance to Pakistan from the Foreign Military Financing fund, which is used to provide military equipment and training to a friendly country, according to reports.
