Washington, Mar 13 (ANI): US President Barack Obama has said that his country faced a terror threat from Pakistan.

Speaking at the dedication of Abraham Lincoln Hall at the National Defence University, Obama said on Thursday that the 9/11 terror attacks signalled the new dangers of the 21st century.

Were still at war with terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan who are plotting to do us harm, the Daily Times quoted Obama, as saying.
