U.S. President Donald Trump's Pakistan strategy has rallied allies to oppose the new U.S. plan to address the unending war in Afghanistan.
Beijing and Moscow have come to Pakistan's defense in light of Trump's Afghan and Pakistan strategy unveiled on Monday. In a televised address, Trump slammed his country's former major ally for going too easy on terrorists on its soil and warned that aid and security assistance to Islamabad could be reduced if the nation doesn't stop providing 'safe havens' to militants.

Trump's harsh remarks about Pakistan, which the U.S. has long accused of harboring terrorists, drew a fiery response from both China and Russia, two emerging allies of Pakistan that have recently begun working with the South Asian nation on resolving the Afghan crisis.
President Trump, who says he is committed to leading the U.S. to victory in America's longest war in history, warned that had 'much to lose' by continuing to offer safe havens to 'agents of chaos.' The U.S. has lost in Afghanistan since 2001, and Trump announced that he will deploy about another 4,000 troops to complement his nation's fewer than 10,000 troop contingent left in the war-torn country.
