That same day, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had telephonic contact with Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
The US Secretary of State said in a tweet that he had spoken to Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on the telephone and spoke to him about the operation in Iraq in his defense which killed Qasim Sulaimani.
On January 4, US President Donald Trump confirmed the resumption of a military training program for Pakistan.
In a statement issued by Assistant Secretary of State for the United States Alice Wells, it was said that the program was restored in view of US national security.
After the death of Major General Qasim Sulaimani, tensions between the United States and Iran have increased and war clouds are shaking in the region.
In this situation Pakistan has clearly stated that it does not support any unilateral action and will not allow its land to be used against anyone.
