Haqqani Network Terrorist Designation Act of 2012 - Expresses the sense of Congress that the Secretary of State should designate the Haqqani Network (an insurgent network operating in Pakistan and Afghanistan) as a foreign terrorist organization.
Directs the Secretary to report to Congress on: (1) whether the Haqqani Network meets the criteria for designation as a foreign terrorist organization; and (2) which criteria have not been met, if the Secretary determines that the Haqqani Network does not meet such designation.
States that nothing in this Act may be construed to infringe upon the sovereignty of Pakistan to combat militant or terrorist groups operating inside its boundaries.
