“Coalition and Afghan forces are increasing the pressure on the Taliban in Afghanistan,” Clinton told a news conference in the Pakistan capital. “And across the border, we look to Pakistan to take strong steps to deny Afghan insurgents safe havens and to encourage the Taliban to enter negotiations in good faith.”
