US sees ‘positive indicators’ from Pakistan on fight against terrorism


WASHINGTON: The US military is seeing some “positive indicators” from Pakistan showing it is becoming more responsive to US concerns about militant safe havens in the country but Islamabad has yet to make a strategic shift, a top US general said on Tuesday.

“We are now beginning to see very positive indicators … that they are moving in the right direction,” said General Joseph Votel, head of the US military’s Central Command, citing unspecified Pakistani actions ‘on the ground’.

“It does not yet equal the decisive action that we would like to see them take in terms of a strategic shift, but they are positive indicators,” Votel told a hearing of the US House of Representatives.
