U.S. officials say President Donald Trump’s administration has quietly started cutting scores of Pakistani officers from coveted training and educational programs. They have been a hallmark of bilateral military relations for more than a decade. Reuters reports that the move is one of the first known impacts from Trump’s decision this year to suspend U.S. security assistance to Pakistan to compel it to crack down on Islamic militants. The move has not been previously reported. The Pentagon and the Pakistani military did not comment directly on the decision or the internal deliberations. Officials from both countries, though, privately criticized the move. Speaking to Reuters on the condition of anonymity, U.S. officials said they were worried the decision could undermine a key trust-building measure. Pakistani officials warned it could push their military to further look to China or Russia for leadership training.
