Pakistan wary of US troop cuts in Afghanistan

Fears are mounting in Pakistan's volatile tribal regions of the destabilising effects of the US withdrawal.

    Officials in Islamabad are concerned the US military withdrawal from Afghanistan could have serious consequences for Pakistan's volatile tribal areas.

    Some analysts fear that the US troop cuts could destabilise the fragile balance maintained in the area by various tribes and armed groups.
