Urged by the United States, Pakistan launched two major military operations against Taliban militants in the country's northwest this year. Will Pakistan relieve the burden of the United States in fighting Taliban in neighboring Afghanistan?

In March, Obama announced his new strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan "to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat al Qaida in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and to prevent their return to either country in the future."

In Pakistan, the new government under Zardari put forward its 3D Strategy -- Dialogue, Development, Deterrence -- to deal with the situation in the country's tribal and northwestern areas with the view of maintaining peace and security in the region.
