WASHINGTON: The US once again called on Pakistan to do more to crack down on extremism. Briefing the newsmen in Washington on Friday, State Department Deputy Spokesman Mark Toner said that United States want Pakistan to take actions to combat and delegitimize all terrorist groups operating on its soil.

He added , Obviously, Pakistan has suffered greatly at the hands of terrorists and violent extremists. We want to help Pakistan confront this terrorist threat, but we also want Pakistan also to go after those terrorists who seek and sometimes find safe haven on Pakistan territory.

When asked about the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief’s money laundering case, Toner referred the journalist to British government.
