Gen. Votel said that the U.S. valued Pakistan's role towards war on terror and expected that the on-going turbulence remained a temporary phase.
Mr. Trump lashed out at 's alleged support for extremists in a New Year's Day tweet, saying the USA had "foolishly" given more than $33 billion in aid and had gotten nothing in return but "lies & deceit", alleging 's involvement in providing "safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan".
Pakistanis are still outraged two weeks after Trump's New Year's Day tweet accusing Islamabad of "deceit and lies", and of taking $33 billion in aid over 15 years while harboring Afghan insurgents, who are attacking American soldiers in neighboring Afghanistan.

The statement came after Trump froze up to $1.9 billion in funding to Pakistan, in a move created to force its military and intelligence apparatus to halt its support for the Afghan Taliban and other Islamist groups.
"U.S. Central Command is in continuous communication with the Pakistan military, including recurring conversations between General Votel and Pakistan Chief of Army Staff Bajwa", a statement said.
Army Chief, General Qamar Bajwa has said that Pakistan wouldn't ask for restoration of the financial assistance suspended by the United States and will continue its whole-hearted efforts against militancy and terrorism even without U.S. financial support in accordance with our own national interest. In response, the Pakistani Foreign Minister stated that his country was no longer in an alliance with the United States and said that its partner was treating it as a "whipping boy" for its failure in Afghanistan, powerfully remarking that America is "a friend who always betrays". There has been speculation the US military might undertake drone strikes deep inside Pakistan to target suspected hideouts of the Taliban and the allied Haqqani network. "We value mutual understanding of interests and concerns that we need to consider that might lead to a positive path forward".
With deadline approaching, Trump may decide to 'rip up' Iran nuclear deal
Iran has been gripped by anti-government protests in recent weeks, leading the Islamic Republic to imprison thousands of people. Trump on January 12 is facing another quarterly deadline for certifying whether Iran is in compliance with the deal.
Trump has been less charitable towards Pakistan. Currently, there are about 14,000 USA forces in Afghanistan.
Should he become the prime minister, PTI chief said "yes we would talk", referring to Trump, but added that the U.S. dishonours the memory of thousands of Pakistani soldiers who died battling militants, as well as that of tens of thousands of Pakistanis who died in terrorist attacks.
Also in question is nearly $1 billion of USA military equipment that has allowed Pakistan access to advanced military technology.
