US Congress pushes for Haqqani Network terrorist label

The United States Congress has stepped up pressure on the Obama administration to declare Haqqani Network a terrorist organization.
The US Senate also approved a bill on Thursday which requires the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to report in 30 days whether the network meets the criteria to be designated as a foreign terrorist organization.
The bill will be forwarded for approval to US President Barak Obama.
It is pertinent to mention that the bill was approved by the House of Represenatives on July 18.
