"Do More" demand from US once again arised for Pakistan


WASHINGTON: The "Do More" demand from United States has once again arised for Pakistan after the recent visit of the US Senators to Pakistan and Afghanistan.

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts said the Pakistani leaders have been asked to do more in connection with the counterterrorism efforts.

Warren traveled this week to Afghanistan, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates as part of a bipartisan congressional delegation, making her overseas debut as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Resorting to micro-blogging website, the Democratic Senator, who was the part of the delegation, said that the US officials told Pakistani leaders that they must “do more” to eliminate safe havens and terrorist groups in Pakistan.

She also shared her group photograph alongside Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and other military officers in South Waziristan.

The US senator said she was briefed on how USAID’s development projects are making a real difference in people’s lives.

The overseas trip marked the most visible demonstration of Warren’s work on defense matters – an area she is less known for after years of focusing on the nation’s economic recovery and financial regulatory reform.
