Hillary Clinton considers blacklisting Haqqani Network
Washington, Aug 16 (ANI): The U.S. State Department has voiced concern about the Haqqani network, and said it was considering whether to designate the group as terrorists after strong appeals by Congress.
President Barack Obama's administration has repeatedly demanded that Pakistan take action against the terrorist group active in Afghanistan, and has also targeted its members, but has stopped short of putting the network on the terror blacklist, reports the Daily Times.
Earlier, Obama had signed a law that gave 30 days to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to determine if the Haqqani network meets the criteria of a terrorist outfit.
"We share the grave concern of the Congress with regard to the activities of the Haqqani network," U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.
As to whether Clinton will designate the Haqqani network as terrorists, Nuland said: "She's considering right now and reviewing the issue." (ANI)
