Pakistan [Islamabad], Jan 6 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Saturday said financial assistance from the United States is "very, very insignificant" that it is considering cuts up to two billion dollars assistance.
The Guardian quoted Abbasi as saying "The aid in the last five years at least has been less than $10m a year. It is a very, very insignificant amount. So when I read in the paper that aid at the level of $250m or 500 or 900 has been cut, we at least are not aware of that aid."
Adding, he said, "We have over 6,500 [killed] almost 37,000 of the civilian population has been killed. There are tens of thousands of people injured. We have suffered a loss of over USD 120 billion in our economy. So, the world has to appreciate that. We just want the world to know that Pakistan is on the forefront of the war on terror."
