Britain could give a huge shock to Pak, Will make a huge cut in Financial help

LONDON: Amid a parliamentary inquiry into Britain's aid to Pakistan between 2013 and 2018, there are indications that Pakistan's funding from Britain could come down drastically next year. According to a report by Geo News, the huge pressure to cut foreign aid could also be cut to Pakistan amid rising poverty in Britain and political tensions over Brexit on the country's government.
