Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar will soon visit Washington in an effort to chalk out a clear-cut’ deal on the relationship between the two countries. This will be the first visit by a senior Pakistani official to Washington since the lifting of the seven-month long blockade of the NATO transit routes.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had invited Khar during a meeting on the fringes of the recent Afghan conference in Tokyo. The foreign minister accepted the invitation and dates of the visit are being finalised. Khar will meet with key US officials, including Hillary, to discuss details of an agreement for future cooperation between the two allies.
