Obama writes to Zardari; warns against using LeT
Washington, Nov 30: Warning Pakistan against using insurgents for its policy goals, US president Barack Obama has sent a two-page reprimand letter to Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari to take action against terrorists before US step in to do the needful.

The letter which was  hand-delivered by National Security Adviser General (retd) James Jones during his visit to Islamaband on Nov 2009, contained a stern message for Zardari to stop its ambiguous relations with extremists groups.

Specific mention was made of al Qaeda, the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqani network, Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and Tehrik-e-Taliban by Obama stating that US cannot ignore Pakistan's close collaboration with these terror groups any longer.

Substantiating Obama's message, Jones said that US may be impelled to rout insurgents from Pakistan's western and southern borders with Afghanistan,  in case Pakistan fails to deliver.

Obama also expressed US desire to act as a mediator between Pakistan and India in his two-page letter.
