US: (US says Pakistan’s operation against terrorists effective)

ISLAMABAD: The United States (US) says Pakistan under Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is moving away from terrorism as a result of effective operations against terrorists.

Talking to newsmen in Washington, US Senator Tim Kaine said the directional change came after the 2013 elections, which brought a new democratic set-up in the country.

Tim Kaine, who is also a member of two powerful Senate committees on foreign relations and armed services, said Pakistan is now sincerely acting against terrorists in North Waziristan and other areas. He said the terrorist organizations are feeling tough pressure from the government.
