US praises Pakistan role against terror

Published January 17, 2007

WASHINGTON, Jan 16: The United States on Tuesday acknowledged Pakistan was trying to prevent terrorists from creating safe havens inside its territory hours after an air raid killed several suspected militants in the tribal area. “The government of Pakistan is working to prevent terrorist safe havens for attacks in Afghanistan or Pakistan,” a US State Department official told Dawn when asked to comment on the Pakistan Army’s raid in South Waziristan.

“We commend Pakistan’s continued efforts to fight terrorists in the region and on its own soil.”

The official said that Pakistan agreed with the United States that there should be no havens for terrorists within its border.
