The Trump administration plans to slash USD 100 million and give USD 800 million as reimbursement to Pakistan in the next fiscal for its military support in fighting terror, a defence department official said. The administration has proposed the USD 100 million cut in its annual budget proposals under the Coalition Support Fund, a Pentagon programme to reimburse US allies that have incurred costs in supporting counter-terrorist and counter-insurgency operations.

Pakistan is one of the largest recipients under the fund and has received USD 14 billion since 2002. But for the past two years, the Congress has imposed conditions on disbursal of the fund.
