Pakistan terrorists kill our American soldiers: Nikki Haley

1530217060-8738WASHINGTON :Former US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has said that Pakistan harbours terrorists who “go out and try to kill American soldiers.”
In her latest book “With All Due Respect: Defending America with Grit and Grace” that hit the stores on Tuesday, Indian-American Haley wrote that US President Donald Trump was outraged when she presented to him her finding that despite being one of the largest recipient of American aid, Pakistan not only voted against US at the UN, but also harboured terrorists.
“We give Pakistan more aid than all but a handful of countries. In 2017 the US gave their military almost USD 1 billion in aid. Pakistan opposes us at the UN a full 76 percent of the time. What’s worse, Pakistan harbours terrorists who go out and try to kill our American soldiers,” Ms Haley wrote in her latest book.
“I brought these findings and others to President Trump. He was outraged. Soon after, he asked Congress to pass legislation ensuring that US foreign aid only goes to promote US interests and US friends,” the former top American diplomat said.
Haley, in her latest book With All Due Respect, said that in contrast of the US’ growing partnership with India, the greatest foreign threat America faces today is China.
“China is working strategically to spread its financial and military presence across the globe-and not in a good way. China steals intellectual property. It helps North Korea cheat on sanctions, Haley said.
The Chinese manipulate their currency in ways that poison our trade relationship, she said, adding that they are enlarging their military at a rapid pace. A good example of the difference between the threat posed by free versus unfree governments is two of the largest- and fastest- growing economies in the world: India and China, Haley wrote in the book.
In her book, that is being promoted by US President Donald Trump on Twitter, the two-term Governor of South Carolina said that in addition to being a bad economic actor and a strategic threat, the Chinese government is one of the greatest human rights abusers in the world, she alleged.
In their own country, it has created re-education camps against an ethnic and religious minority, and an Orwellian surveillance state to protect Communist Party control over its people,” she said.
Meanwhile, India is a nuclear power and nobody gives it a second thought. Why? Because India is a democracy and threatens no one, wrote Haley, whose Sikh parents moved to the US in 1969.

The United States has a partnership with India that is strong and getting stronger. Both countries have been the victims of terrorism. We share a commitment to defeating terrorists and the hateful ideology that motivates them, she said.
We share a commitment to stopping Afghanistan and Pakistan from giving safe harbour to terrorists, like they did before September 11, 2001. Most important, our partnership is based on shared principles, the top Republican politician wrote.
She said that India and the US share a belief in democracy, hard work, family, and achievement. Indian Americans have been very successful in the US.”We are the minority group that is the most educated, has the highest per-capita income, and, most important, is one of the most charitable in America, she said.
