The United States has offered to restore $800million in military aid to Pakistan, if it reverses its decision of expelling US military trainers. Chairman of Senate’s Arms Services Committee, Congressmen, Senator Levin, who is on a visit to Pakistan, made the offer to Army chief General Kayani at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi on Tuesday.

The Pakistan Army expelled close to 100 US military trainers from the country in June, following the Abbottabad raid which killed Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden. According to an official speaking on terms of anonymity, Gen Kayani refused to review the decision anytime soon.
