India may ask US to stop funds to Pak

India is likely to nudge the United States to stop releasing financial aid to Pakistan till it sheds its “selective approach” in combatting terror networks.

With American President Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor H R McMaster arriving in New Delhi on Monday, India is likely to suggest that the US should stop release of remaining $350 million of the total $900 million coalition support fund earmarked for Pakistan.

New Delhi would point out that Washington should release fund to Islamabad only when Pakistan Army would act against the organizations it had so far avoided targeting during its counter-terrorism operations. McMaster is likely to call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi apart from meeting his counterpart Ajit Doval during his stay in New Delhi.

His is the first visit to New Delhi by a senior US official after Trump Administration took over in Washington.
