Washington: United States and Pakistan are working together successfully to increasingly make it difficult for the Taliban and Al Qaeda to work in the region, the Obama Administration has said.

"Through a concerted effort by both our Pakistani and Afghan allies, we are making it much more difficult and reducing the space with which these insurgents can operate," said the Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs, P J Crowley, at his daily news conference yesterday.

Refraining to making any comment on the arrest of more top Taliban leaders in Pakistan, Crowley said if the news as reported in the media is true that it "continues to reflect the significant efforts" of the US and Pakistan on both sides of the border.

This, Crowley, said is exactly what the strategy laid by the US President Barack Obama a year ago hoped to achieve.
