ISLAMABAD - Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen has expressed his satisfaction over the way the security forces of Pakistan were trying to dismantle terror networks of the outlawed TTP Chief Baitullah Mehsud and mounting pressure on him soon. The United States top military officer made these remarks during his meetings with Pakistan Army Chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani on Thursday, TheNation has reliably learnt. Although there was no official comment from the ISPR, informed sources said that Admiral Mullen was all praise for Pakistan Armed forces for their Rah-e-Rast operation in Swat and Malakand region. APP adds: The US chief commander held separate meetings with Army Chief General Kayani as well as Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Tariq Majid and discussed matters of mutual interests with them. The sources said that he has also praised Pakistans handling of the humanitarian crisis resulting from an assault on Taliban strongholds in the northwest. Later, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff and US Ambassador to Pakistan Anne W Patterson along with a high level delegation visited one Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) camp at Jalozai and talked to media persons there. There had been great speculation that this was going to be a massive problem that couldnt be handled, Mullen told reporters. It seemed to be very well handled, said Mullen, whose visit came days after authorities allowed families to go home. Pakistans Western allies were relieved when the army swung into action in April as concern mounted over the stability of the nuclear-armed Muslim state. The army is now in the final stages of the Swat operation, and has orders to mount a campaign against Taliban commander Baitullah Mehsud in the remote, mountainous Waziristan tribal region that borders Afghanistan. Having met army chief General Ashfaq Kayani earlier on Thursday, Mullen said he didnt believe Pakistani forces risked becoming over-stretched and said the approach to Waziristan appeared 'very orderly. The visitors were received by Chairman Special Support Group for IDPs Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmed. Tough security arrangements were made by the security agencies. They were briefed at the hall of Army Field Hospital by Chairman Special Support Group Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmed. Michael Mullen and the US delegation were informed that about two million people displaced due to operation against militants in Malakand Division and Swat have moved to downward districts of NWFP including Swabi, Charssada, Mardan, Nowhera and Peshawar in a very disparate condition. It was a big challenge for the government to provide them accommodation, foods, health facilities, clean drinking water, schooling, tent and with grace of Allah Almighty we successfully counter this challenge by accommodating such large number of IDPs in various camps in Peshawar, Charssada, Swabi, Mardan and Nowshra. He said that government was working on a comprehensive strategy to reconstruct the entire damaged infrastructure in Malakand Division, Swat and rehabilitate the IDPs. He said that billions of dollars would be required for reconstruction and repair of the destroyed infrastructure including schools, hospitals, bridges, roads, colleges in Swat and Malakand Division. Gen Nadeem explained the plan chalked out for reconstruction and rehabilitation phase and governments relief measures taken for assistance of IDPs. Michael Mullan while lauding Pakistans matchless role in war against terrorism said that world should back Pakistan. The US ambassador while highly eulogising the operation of Pakistans security forces in Swat said that US will continue to support and help Pakistan. The delegates visited different tents and inquired from IDPs about their problems. AFP adds: Mullan warned Thursday that Taliban militants in Afghanistan have grown more violent and better organised in recent years, and troops face very difficult fighting ahead. The US military faced a crucial 18-month battle to help stabilise the country for the Afghan people and stem a three-year slide in security, said Admiral Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Mullen said it was unclear how long it would take to improve the security situation, but the latest phase of the operation in southern Helmand province was only just beginning, in an interview with the BBCs Arabic TV service. He also said ultimately it would be the Afghan people themselves who would help defeat the insurgency. People ask me 'how long? and I dont know how long, Mullen said. I know its (security) got progressively worse over the three, three and a half years since 2006, he said at Bagram Airbase outside Kabul. And the Taliban has got much better, they are much more violent, they are much more organised and so theres going to be fighting that is associated with it. And in the end, if we get it right for the Afghan people, the Afghan people will turn the Taliban out, and thats the answer in a counter insurgency. Mullen said he was confident there were now sufficient resources in Helmand province to hold areas that troops take from the militants.
