Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) issued the following statement on the announcement by the Secretary of State that she will designate the Haqqani Network a terrorist organization:

"I am very pleased that the State Department has announced they will designate the Haqqani Network, the most lethal component of the Taliban, a terrorist organization. This group, who routinely attacks civilian populations and has carried out high profile attacks on American and coalition forces, is violent, ruthless, indiscriminate in their killing, and, worst of all, well organized, well funded, and well trained. By designating them a terrorist organization, we will be able to more effectively pursue them and go after their financial and property interests, improving stability and security in the region and across the world."
