Pakistan needs to do more to stop being a launch-pad for terror: Clinton
New Delhi, May 8 (ANI): Asserting that the United States will do everything to prevent terrorists from carrying out evil acts of violence, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said Pakistan needs to do more to stop being a launch-pad for terror.
At a joint press conference with External Affairs Minister S.M Krishna here, Clinton said: "Pakistan should ensure its territories are not used as launching pad by terror groups for attacks both within and outside the country."
She also said that Hafiz Sayeed was one of the "principal architects" of the 2008 Mumbai carnage.
Hillary's comments came at a joint news conference after her talks with External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna who spoke of the need for elimination of terrorist sanctuaries in the neighbourhood.
Krishna said: "There is a need for stronger action from Pakistan on terrorism, including on bringing to justice the perpetrators of Mumbai terrorist attack. We also discussed our respective relations with Pakistan."
"Secretary Clinton and I reviewed the entire gamut of our bilateral relations. We also discussed our vision for Afghanistan. We stressed the need for sustained international commitment to build Afghan capacity for governance, security and economic development, and to support Afghanistan with assistance, investment and regional linkages. Recent attacks in Kabul highlight once again the need for elimination of terrorist sanctuaries in the neighbourhood," he added. (ANI)
