Washington, Sept 27: A new resolution has been introduced in the House of Representatives to freeze all US aid to Pakistan. The House Resolution (No HR 3013) if passed, will freeze all US aid to Pakistan with the exception of funds that are designated to help secure nuclear weapons.

"Since the discovery of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan has proven to be disloyal, deceptive and a danger to the United States," Congressman Ted Poe said in a statement after tabling the resolution in the House on Friday.

"This so-called ally continues to take billions in US aid, while at the same time supports the militants who attack us.

"The United States must immediately freeze all aid to Pakistan," said Poe, who is a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. According to Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, just this month the Pakistani government supported the groups who were behind both the truck bomb attack that wounded more than 70 US and Nato Troops and the attack on the US Embassy, Poe said.

The resolution has been sent to the house foreign affairs Committee for necessary action.
