Pak hasn't done as much as US, India wanted: Clinton

May 07, 2012 12:54 IST

United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday said Pakistan has not done as much as the US and India wanted it to do to fight terrorism.

"Pakistan has lost far more people than India and the US. 30,000 lives have been lost in Pakistan in terroist attacks. It is in their interest that Pakistan should deal with the problem of terrorism," Clinton told an interactive session in Kolkata.

"We want to disable al Qaeda. We have made lots of progress. Many of their leaders are on the run. Some are in Pakistan. We want to go after them," she said.

In a reference to JUD chief Hafiz Saeed, Clinton said that the US has announced a USD 10 million bounty on the man who masterminded the Mumbai attack.

"We are all aware that Pakistan has not done as much as the US and India wanted to fight terrorism," she said in reply to a question what was the next big target of the US after Laden.
