Notwithstanding the advances made against the Taliban in southern Afghanistan and arrest of top militant leaders in Pakistan, the White House on Friday said that there is a long way to go in the war against terror.

"It will be a long road in Afghanistan," White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said at his daily press briefing.

"We believe that the steps we have taken makes progress, and the (US) President and military leaders believe that we are also making progress in rooting out and in capturing members of the Taliban, members of Al Qaeda, and working every day to make the world safer," Gibbs said.

"In Afghanistan and in Pakistan, particularly in our efforts in Afghanistan, you've seen the recent offensive in Marja.

And, as I said, in being in the briefing with General McChrystal and others, that we are making progress," Gibbs said in response to a question.
