Washington, Jul 7: Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of the State expressed her full faith in the new commander of US-led NATO forces in Afghanistan, General David Petraeus and said that most Afghanistan citizens do not see the return of Taliban.

Hillary praised David Patraeus that he would be successful in Afghanistan, as he was very successful in Iraq. She added that US President Barack Obama and herself have a lot of confidence in him.

Hillary in an interview said that the people of Afghanistan, who are constantly under the attack by a relatively small but lethal suicidal band of extremists, do not want to see the return of Taliban.

She said that it is necessary to create conditions where the people will feel secure enough to stand up to the Taliban.

Hillary Clinton said that US recognize the threat as an ungoverned and failed state which provides safe haven to the terrorists. The challenge of US is to accelerate the slow and steady progress against terror threat and to institutionalize it.
