  • US President Donald Trump's inauguration kicked off a momentous and tumultuous year

Trump announced his administration's plans for the continuing U.S. military engagement in Afghanistan in August, which specifically called on Pakistan to do more to fight terrorism.

Union Minister of State (MoS) Jitendra Singh on Monday said United States President Donald Trump's decision to end aid to Pakistan has "vindicated India's stand on terrorism".

The Trump administration said in August that it was delaying sending the US$255 million in aid to Pakistan.

Earlier this month, Trump had already hinted that he may cut off the aid for good.

During the announcement, the U.S. president was quick to remind Pakistan of its obligation toward helping America because it receives "massive payments" from Washington every year.

And in late December, Vice President Mike Pence told American troops during a visit to Afghanistan, "President Trump has put Pakistan on notice".

The group was responsible for kidnapping a Canadian-American couple and holding them from 2012 to 2017, when Pakistani forces secured their release in what they said was as a rescue operation but some United States officials reportedly described as a "negotiated handover".

Pakistan's foreign minister, Khawaja M. Asif, wrote on Twitter "We will respond to President Trump's tweet shortly inshallah.Will let the world know the truth.difference between facts & fiction".

It was not immediately clear why Trump chose to send the message on Pakistan, but in the past he has accused Islamabad of supporting "agents of chaos" and has demanded that Pakistan act against the Taliban and Haqqani network.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tried to downplay the significance of the uprisings, saying, "Our great nation has witnessed a number of similar incidents in the past and has comfortably dealt with them".

"The Pakistani government's cooperation is a sign that it is honoring America's wishes for it to do more to provide security in the region", he said in a statement.

Trump first signaled that the United States was reassessing its fractious relations with Pakistan in August, when he accused Islamabad of harboring "agents of chaos".

In countering US criticism, Pakistan says it has launched military operations to push out militants from its soil and that 17,000 Pakistanis have died fighting militants or in bombings and other attacks since 2001.
