Pakistan's army says troops backed by artillery and helicopter gunships have killed 26 militants in an attack near the Afghan border.
The army said the battle took place in Mohmand, North-West Frontier Province, said to be a hub for Taleban militants.
Earlier, Pakistan's president said his country would not allow use of its soil for terrorist activity.
It came after the US said elements in Pakistan's ISI military intelligence were still supporting the Taleban.
US President Barack Obama has thrust the Afghan-Pakistan border to the centre of his new strategy.
On Friday he warned that growing radical forces in Afghanistan and the boundary area in Pakistan posed the greatest threat to the American people and the world.
Mr Obama proposed a big spending programme on infrastructure projects, and said 4,000 extra troops would be sent to Afghanistan to train security forces.
