Pakistan: US puts forward a motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watchlist

(Islamabad) I bet the Pakistani Government is wishing it hadn’t made such public attack on the US after Washington withheld a load of Aid money . You know where they openly burnt pictures of President Trump on the streets, where Pakistani Bank replaced the dollar with the Chinese Yuan as its preferredcurrency of payment  and even having the gall to summon the US ambassador for a talking to.

It appears the US under President Trump is not the US under Obama which is why  he United States has put forward a motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watchlist . Which it previously was on from 2012-2015. A senior U.S. official in the region said
“Pakistan has always been selective” in cracking down on militants who use its territory as a base. It is time for that to stop, and so we are working with our allies, who also are affected, to see effective action against groups such as the Haqqanis and elements of the Taliban.”
Pakistan’s de facto finance minister, Miftah Ismail, told Reuters that the United States and Britain put forward the motion several weeks ago, and later persuaded France and Germany to co-sponsor it.
“We are now working with the U.S., UK, Germany and France for the nomination to be withdrawn,” Ismail said, speaking by telephone from Europe. We are also quite hopeful that even if the U.S. did not withdraw the nomination that we will prevail and not be put on the watchlist.”
Its not before time at all, For years the Pakistanis have played the US (If not the world) why for a coutnry which is virtually bankrupt, its just been revealed that they are developing new types of Nukes. This a country which can't even feed its own people. Hopefully a few years of no money will force Pakistan to sever its links with Islamic terrorism.
