US Secretary of State John Kerry, who is on a three-day visit here, said that he has discussed with Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif the issue of taking stronger action against groups such as the Haqqani network and LeT.

Addresing a session at IIT-Delhi here, he said terror groups like Daesh, Al Qaeda, LeT and JeM can't be fought by a single nation alone.

"We are working on it. I have been working on this issue very hard. I have had many engagements with Nawaz Sharif. We have been talking on the sanctuaries in the western part of the country, how to deal more effectively with the Haqqani network and the LeT.

"It is clear that Pakistan has work to do in order to push harder against its indigenous groups that are engaged in terrorist activities. They must work with us to help clear sanctuary of bad actors who are affecting not only India-Pakistan relationship but also our ability to achieve peace and stability in Afghanistan," Kerry said. Kerry said Pakistan has fastened the process in the recent months.
