US Congress calls for sanctions on Pakistan

A bill has been introduced in the US Congress to declare Pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism. According to the Daily Dawn, the bill was introduced by Republican Congressman Scott Perry from Pennsylvania. The bill also calls for sanctions on Pakistan. The bill has been referred to the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

The sanctions proposed in the bill include foreign aid, export and sale of defense products, export of dual-use items and other financial sanctions. Currently, there are only four countries that have been included in the list of countries that finance terrorism. These include Cuba, North Korea, Iran and Syria.

In addition to the bill, Scott Perry, along with two other members, Gregory Steve and Marie E. Miller, wrote a letter to US Attorney General Merck Garland, demanding that Pakistan’s ambassador to Pakistan, Masood Khan, join Kashmiri and Pakistani groups. Alleged links should be investigated. It should be noted that last month another US Congressman had tried to block the appointment of Masood Khan as ambassador, but the Biden administration rejected his protest and confirmed the appointment of Masood Khan.
