Pakistan among safe havens for terrorists

Washington, Jan 13: US President Barack Obama today said that 'instability will continue for decades' in many parts of the world including Pakistan have become safe havens for new terrorist networks.

In his final State of the Union Address, Obama said terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and ISIL (also known as ISIS) use the Internet to poison the minds of individuals inside the country and undermine American allies.

"Our foreign policy must be focused on the threat from ISIL and al Qaeda, but it can't stop there. For even without ISIL, instability will continue for decades in many parts of the world in the Middle East, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, in parts of Central America, Africa and Asia.  Some of these places may become safe havens for new terrorist networks," he said.
