Clinton said there was a change in Pakistan's attitude to terrorism. "We have seen an evolving commitment not only by the Pakistani government but also by the Pakistani people and a recognition that terrorism within the country is a threat to that country," she said.
"Over the last six months, in course of working with the government of Pakistan, we believe that there is a commitment to clear terrorism by the entire government and that is what our expectation is. We are watching it and hope (Pakistan) will make full cooperation against what is a syndicate of terrorism," she said.
"Al-Qaeda, Taliban and other terrorist organisation are connected in a way that is troubling deeply the US, India and is now troubling the entire world," Clinton stressed.
"We have suffered attacks, we have sent young men and women to fight against the terrorists and we expect every country to stand against the scourge of terrorism," she said while alluding to the 9/11 attacks in the US.
"It's not one country's responsibility, but everybody's responsibility. Terrorism is a threat we think about every day. Terrorism anywhere is a threat to everywhere," she added
