The United States has started cutting scores of Pakistani military officers from the education and training program, Pakistani media reported.
 
The U.S. military institutions are “struggling” to fill the 66 slots, which they had kept aside for Pakistani officers, for the next academic year, the daily Dawn quoted anonymous sources as saying.
 
The move comes a few days after Pakistan and Russia signed an agreement to allow Pakistani military officers to receive training in Russian military institutions.
 
“The fund for training Pakistani officers came from the US government’s International Military Education and Training Programme (IMET) but no funds were made available for Pakistan for the next academic year,” the daily reported.
 
However, the White House has not yet officially conveyed the decision to Islamabad, sources in Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry told Anadolu Agency.
