ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Tuesday summoned the US Chargé d'Affaires (CdA) in Islamabad to protest against remarks made by President Donald Trump criticizing Pakistan's role in fighting terrorism and in the capture of Osama bin Laden.

"The Foreign Secretary called in the US CdA Ambassador Paul Jones to register a strong protest on the unwarranted and unsubstantiated allegations made against Pakistan," the country's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.



Over the weekend, Trump said in an interview that Pakistan doesn't "do a damn thing" for the United States despite billions of dollars in US aid, and alleged that Pakistani officials knew former al Qaeda leader bin Laden's location before his killing by US troops in a raid inside Pakistan in 2011. On Monday, Trump tweeted again and doubled down on those claims.
