Amid India's insistence on credible action by Pakistan against terror, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Islamabad has shown "greater effort and commitment" against the menace over last six months but it was too early to talk about the outcome.

She asked Pakistan to dismantle all terror outfits, including Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamaat-ud-Dawa, but skirted a question on US putting pressure on Islamabad to hand over Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar and underworld don Dawood Ibrahim to India.

"Based on what we have seen in the last six months... there has been a much greater effort and commitment and that is not only at the government level but much more through society to take on the terrorists and I believe that there is a concerted effort that we can look to and see the results from," Clinton, who is on a five-day visit, said at a press meet here.

However, she said "it is too early to tell the outcome of this commitment that we see coming from Pakistan."

Apparently expecting some more action by Pakistan, she said, "I also believe, in the next few days, there will be a greater awareness whether or not there will be a commitment to bring the Mumbai terrorists to heel and hopefully to justice."

Clinton, who was speaking after paying tributes to the victims of 26/11 attacks at Taj Hotel, said, "The US is very supportive of all efforts in the fight against terrorism."
