The United States has said that it is pleased with the success of Pakistan army against the Taliban and Al Qaeda in Southern Waziristan and reiterated that it would continue to support such efforts to combat terrorism.

"We have a robust partnership with Pakistan, an aid package that is supportive of their economic development efforts, but also of their security efforts," State Department spokesman Ian Kelly told journalists at his daily press briefing on Tuesday.

"We've been very supportive of their offensive in South Waziristan and supportive of their efforts to deal with the problem of the violent extremists in the region," Kelly said.
