“Due to a lack of Pakistani decisive actions in support of the South Asia Strategy the remaining $300 (million) was reprogrammed,” a Pentagon spokesman was quoted as saying by Reuters.

Lieutenant Colonel Kone Faulkner said the US military said would ask Congress for approval to divert the funds for other tasks. In case of a congressional not, the money will be spent on urgent priorities.
