President Obama has said Al Qaeda has been forced to hunker down along Pakistan-Afghanistan border as a result of successful anti-terror efforts and now it is becoming hard for the militant organization to carry out big operations.
In an interview, Obama vowed sustained pressure on Al Qaeda operatives hiding in the region as he also observed that the organization is becoming stronger and dangerous in Yemen.
“Here’s what we’ve done. Part of the reason that an analyst would say that Al Qaeda’s stronger in Yemen than just about anywhere else is because we have actually been pretty successful at forcing Al Qaeda in the border regions between Afghanistan and Pakistan to hunker down,” he told media.
“They have been pinned down. And it’s hard for them to carry out big operations. We’ve to keep that pressure up.” he added.
