Pak confused over identifying real threat: US

With the Taliban becoming emboldened in Pakistan, the US has said the civilian and military leadership of that country, which had for long viewed India as its prime threat, was confused with regard to identifying the real danger facing the Islamic state.

"In Pakistan, it's a very difficult environment because of the confusion among the civilian and military leadership about how to prioritise what is the greatest threat to Pakistan going forward," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said at a Town Hall meeting held on the occasion of Foreign Affairs Day on Friday.

Her comments came a day after President Barack Obama, while voicing concern over situation in Pakistan, said that Islamabad was beginning to recognise that viewing India as a "mortal threat" was misguided.

"You're starting to see some recognition just in the last few days that the obsession with India as the mortal threat to Pakistan has been misguided, and that their biggest threat right now comes internally," Obama had said.
