Hillary Clinton Warning to Afghan Leader

Iran dismissed on Monday US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's warning over Tehran's nuclear programme, saying such "threats" have no impact on the Islamic republic.

Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Hassan Ghashghavi said Iran would not listen to any deadlines and added that it was committed to following international laws when it comes to its nuclear programme.

"Our commitments under the international regulations are based on legalities. Remarks that bear threats, deadlines and timetables do not have any impact on us," Ghashghavi said at his weekly press conference, responding to Clinton's comments, AFP informs.

According to Voice of America, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has expressed confidence in Pakistan's government following a predawn raid on militants holding hostages in the Pakistani army's headquarters in Rawalpindi.

S peaking in London Sunday, Clinton said that although militants are increasingly threatening the authority of the Pakistani state, U.S. officials believe no militant takeover is imminent and that the country's nuclear weapons are safe.

Late on Sunday, the New York Times quoted senior administration officials as saying the US president was impatient and "not satisfied" with progress on developing civil institutions, the judiciary and security forces in Afghanistan.

President Barack Obama's civilian goals had been largely unmet, the officials said.

Mr Obama announced in March he would deploy hundreds of civilians to work in the country but officials told the paper that, because of deteriorating security, many aid workers could not travel outside the capital to advise farmers, BBC News reports.
