New Delhi [India], Jan 7 (ANI): After the Pakistan Interior Ministry">Pakistan Interior Ministry blacklisted the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and the Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF), Defence Expert PK Sehgal said that Islamabad is under the pressure of United States.

"Though Pakistan may deny that they are not doing this under US pressure but the fact is US pressure is beginning to work," defence expert PK Sehgal told ANI.

US president Donald Trump, in a strongly-worded tweet, had said earlier that America had been 'foolishly' providing military aid to Pakistan for 15 years, but in return, it has only received 'lies and deceit.'

Trump's scathing remarks come after a media report emerged that the United States was considering withholding a USD 255-million aid to Islamabad due to Pakistan's inability to destroy terror safe havens. (ANI)
