Washington: The United States and Pakistan will hold the sixth ministerial level strategic dialogue in Washigton D.C on Feb 29.
Advisor to the Pakistan Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz and United States Secretary of State John Kerry will lead their sides at these talks.
The dialogue process began in 2010 and the two countries held three ministerial meetings but the process was interrupted in 2011 when a US midnight raid in Abbottabad killed Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
The dialogue will focus on Pakistan’s economic growth, trade and energy cooperation, regional stability, and countering extremism and terrorism, reports Dawn.
The two sides will also review the progress made by the working groups on economy and finance, defence, law-enforcement and counter-terrorism, security, strategic stability, non-proliferation and energy.
It resumed in 2014 after a gap of more than three years when Aziz and Secretary Kerry met in Washington in January.(ANI)
