Clinton promises pressure on Pakistan
WASHINGTON (PAN): US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said her country would continue to press Pakistan to take action against terrorists who were not only threat to them but also to the region and the world at large.
“We were successful in capturing and eliminating a number of the most dangerous terrorists who have safe haven inside Pakistan. We have continued to press the Pakistani government because the terrorists there are an ongoing threat to the stability of Pakistan, and they need to deal with it…” Clinton said.
Clinton, 65, who had an eventful tenure as top American diplomat, was addressing the Global Townterview ahead of her last day in office on February 1. She said she was not satisfied with the progress made in the war against terrorism.
“Of course I'm not satisfied. I believe going after terrorism is an obligation of every country everywhere, every sensible person. We can have disagreements, but they cannot be in any way using violence or condoning the use of violence,” Clinton remarked.
