RAWALPINDI: Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has told Commander US Central Command (Centcom) during a telephonic conversation that the Pakistani nation felt betrayed over recent US statements despite decades of cooperation, the military said in a statement on Friday.
According to the statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), General Bajwa received two telephone calls from General Joseph L. Votel and a US Senator over the weekend to discuss Pak-US security cooperation post the President Trump tweet.
The statement didn’t mention name of the US Senator.
The statement cited the army chief as saying Pakistan will not seek resumption of aid but expect honorable recognition of its contributions, sacrifices and unwavering resolve in fight against terrorism for peace and stability in the region.
General Joseph L. Votel apprised the army chief about the US decision regarding Security Assistance and Coalition Support Fund and said that the US values Pakistan’s role towards war on terror and expected that ongoing turbulence remains a temporary phase.
