    US, Pak heading towards confrontation over FMCT

    Washington: The whopping USD 7.5 billion American aid to Pakistan has run into serious trouble as only a fraction could be spent due to differences in priorities, even as remaining money is under scrutiny.

    In 2009, Congress passed with fanfare the five-year aid plan intended to prove Washington's long-term commitment to Pakistan's weak civilian government.

    $7.5 bn aid to Pak runs into serious trouble: Rpt


    The US and Pakistan are heading towards a confrontation as the Obama administration is preparing to pursue Islamabad to halt the production of nuclear bomb materials by forcing it to sign the Fissile Material Cut off Treaty (FMCT), a media report said on Friday. US plans to launch an open


    move with support from other powers to force Pakistan to sign the treaty and halt the production of nuclear bombs material.

    Pakistan's days of free manipulations are over. It now has to trudge carefully as the giant it so depended its life on for a long time isn't so forgiving to it anymore.
