WASHINGTON: The US should not give any money to Pakistan untill they get rid of their nuclear weapons, said Donald Trump , believed to be a top Republican contender for the next presidential elections.
"Pakistan is a real problem because they have nuclear weapons. And I would say something that I haven't heard, I would say we don't give them any money unless they get rid of their nuclear weapons," Trump told the Fox news in an interview.
Trump said he does not consider Pakistan a friend of the US.
"It's very much like China. These are not friends of ours. These are people that are totally in for themselves and probably some pretty bad people and some enemies. They are not friends of ours and we're going to probably have to deal with them a lot differently than we thought. These are not our friends," he argued.
Observing that there are plenty of other terrorists in Pakistan, Trump said the US shouldn't be giving them USD 3.2 billion a year.
"I've also heard that in many cases where we had somebody that we wanted to get, when we informed them and when we went in to get that terrorist, they weren't there. So somebody gave them some clues. So this is not a good situation in Pakistan. They have nuclear weapons. We're giving them USD 3.2 billion a year and they do not love us," he said.
