Washington, Oct.22 (ANI): U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said that the recent spate of terrorist strikes in Pakistan has highlighted the fact that the threat to that country was expanding.

Interacting with media persons at the White House, Clinton said the audacious terror strikes inside Pakistan have certainly raised concerns over the authority of the state.

Clinton, however, said that there is no 'immediate' danger to the nukes.

"Extremists are increasingly threatening the authority of the state, but we see no evidence that they are going to take over the state. We have confidence in the Pakistani government and military's control over nuclear weapons," The News quoted Clinton, as saying. (ANI)
