US express 'deep concerns about increasing activities' of Haqqani network in Pakistan
Washington, Sep 19(ANI): The United States' Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen has restated his strong desire to see the Pakistani military take action against Haqqani network and their safe havens in North Waziristan.
It comes after Mullen and Pakistan Army chief General Ashfaq Kayani met on the sidelines of a NATO conference in Seville, Spain, on Friday to discuss ways to shore up strained ties.
Mullen's spokesman Captain John Kirby said that, during the meeting, Mullen expressed "deep concerns about the increasing - and increasingly brazen - activities of the Haqqani network".
"They also agreed that the relationship between our two countries remained vital to the region and that both sides had taken positive steps to improve that relationship over the past few months," The News quoted Mullen's spokesman Captain John Kirby, as saying. They also discussed the state of military-to-military cooperation and pledged to continue to find ways to make it better," he added.
It was the first meeting between the military leaders of the two country since the May 2 US military raid to kill Al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad. (ANI)
