Adam Szubin, Acting Under Secretary on Countering the Financing of Terrorism, told a Washington audience that there are forces in Pakistan like ISI fuse to take similar steps against all the terrorist groups.

He added that while the US is ready to help Pakistan o go after all terrorist networks operating in their country, it will not hesitate to act alone to disrupt and destroy those networks,

While pointing out Pakistan continues to remain a vital partner of the US in fight against terrorism, Adam Szubin added that Pakistanis are themselves victims of brutal terrorist attacks on schools, markets, and mosques, and the list goes on.

The under-secretary also said that Pakistan has achieved success in its ongoing operations against traditional terrorist safe havens in north-west of the country. It has not only officially declared ISIL as a terrorist group, but has gone after the funding and operational capabilities of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan.

The US has been continuously being saying that Pakistan has not yet placed much pressure on the Haqqani Network of militants to prevent them from plotting attacks in war- torn Afghanistan.
