major Blow for Pakistan Before Modi-Trump Meet in US

Before Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit, the US has given a huge blow to Pakistan. Bill in relation to the cancellation of status of Major Non-NATO Associate (MNNA i.e. Maj Nan-Nato  Allay) to Pakistan in the US Parliament has been introduced. It has been said that Pakistan has failed to fight against the terrorists effectively. This bill was presented by top Republican Senator Ted Po and Democratic Senator Rick Nolan in the US House of Representatives.

In the year 2004, US President George W. Bush gave Pakistan status of Major Non-NATO Associate, so that Pakistan can help US combat against Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Senator Po said that the hands of Pakistan are in the killing of Americans. It is high time US should punish Pakistan for acting against the interest of the former.



Ted Poe is also a member of the US Congress's Foreign Affairs Committee and chairman of Terrorism, Non-Expansion and Business Subcommittee. He said that for the last several years Pakistan has acted as a treacherous partner of America. Pakistan supported the terrorist Osama bin Laden and the Taliban. He further added, “it seems that Pakistan is hell bent not to do anything to curb the menace of terrorism.”
