US Central Command chief General Joseph Votel has assured the head of Pakistan's army that Washington "is not contemplating any unilateral action" inside the country, a statement from the Pakistani military said Friday. Votel, who spoke to General Qamar Javed Bajwa by telephone "over the week", also said that the "on-going turbulence" around a tweet by Donald Trump suspending aid to the country was "a temporary phase", according to the statement.
