Pakistan counterinsurgency ‘impressive’: Petraeus

Pakistan counterinsurgency ‘impressive’: PetraeusFORWARD OPERATING BASE SALERNO, Afghanistan: The top US and Nato commander in Afghanistan has stressed the importance of growing coordination between coalition forces and their Pakistani counterparts, saying that more such operations would be carried out to pressure a resilient Taliban entrenched in the region.

The Taliban in Afghanistan and other extremist groups use safe havens across the border in Pakistan, and the US has been pushing Islamabad to clear Pakistan’s lawless tribal belt that runs along the frontier. The pressure has often strained US-Pakistani relations, with Islamabad bristling at suggestions it should do more.

Gen. David Petraeus told the AP late Saturday that there have been successful “hammer and anvil” operations straddling the border, with Pakistani forces on one side and Nato and Afghan troops on the other squeezing militants.
