new Delhi. India has given a serious concern to the decision of US $ 865 crores ($ 1.25 million) to help the Pakistan Army. Foreign Ministry spokesman Ravish Kumar said on Thursday that the case has been raised in front of the Delhi-based American ambassador and the Trump administration in Washington.
According to news agency sources, the US Ambassador was called in South Block and the protest was lodged in this case. Indeed, the US Defense Department Pentagon told Parliament last week that it would give Pakistan 865 crores to monitor F-16 fighter jets. The decision of the Pentagon came just after the meeting of Prime Minister Imran Khan and US President Donald Trump.
The External Affairs Ministry spokesman said, “America has said that the proposed cell will not change its attitude towards Pakistan. This help is given to Pak so that it can fix the problems related to technical and operational maintenance of F-16 planes. America will also stop any kind of military help from Pakistan in the coming days. The Pentagon had claimed that with Pakistan’s proposed help, there will be no imbalance in the area. ”
The United States will help Pakistan in this way. The Trump administration had banned Pakistan on January 1, 2018 on the issue of defense cooperation. This decision has been upheld. Only after the meeting of both the leaders has come a change that the US technical staff will give 60 representatives to keep an eye on Pakistan’s F-16 program, which will be contract-based.
