Terrorist safe havens in Pak unacceptable: Obama

New Delhi: Sending a strong message to Pakistan, President Barack Obama today made it clear that terrorist “safe havens” within its borders are “unacceptable” and asked it to bring terrorists behind the Mumbai attacks to justice.

“…We will continue to insist to Pakistan’s leaders that terrorist safe-havens within their borders are unacceptable, and that the terrorists behind the Mumbai attacks be brought to justice,” the President said in his 35-minute address to members of both houses of Parliament.

Obama said India and the US were working together, more closely than ever, to counter terrorism.

Noting that the US’ strategy to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al Qaeda and its affiliates has to succeed on both sides of the border, Obama said that is why the US has worked with the Pakistani government to address the threat of terrorist networks in the border region.
