Government of Pakistan has expelled the military trainers of the United Kingdom from the country. Earlier ,  Pakistan has also expelled over 120 American trainers from the country in the wake of the unilateral attack inside Pakistan on May 2.

There is raising anger over the American behavior of  unilateralism. Majority of the Pakistanis are asking for the decreased cooperation with the United States and its close allies as they feel the western allies are compromising Pakistan's sovereignty with continuous drone attacks and cross border operations.
