Washington: The Trump administration is beginning an inter-agency policy review of relations with Pakistan, US secretary of state Rex Tillerson has said, underlining that the President asked questions about the level of support and funding to Islamabad.

“We are beginning an inter-agency policy review towards Pakistan,” Mr Tillerson told lawmakers during a Congressional hearing on the state department’s annual budget proposals.

He made the remarks while responding to a question from Congressman Dana Rohrabacher as to why the US was continuing to give financial assistance to Pakistan.

“The President has asked the question specifically about our level of support and funding to Pakistan. No decision is to be taken until we complete that review,” Mr Tillerson said.
