John Kerry will be meeting Pak-leaders

Pakistan News: Senate Foreign Relations Chairman John Kerry will be meeting Pakistani leaders and officials in a damage control bid, after the arrest of a US diplomat for fatally shooting two Pakistani boys.

The US embassy in Islamabad confirming the arrival Tuesday night said Kerry would meet senior Pakistani officials and “reaffirm U.S. support for the strategic relationship between the two countries.” Senator Kerry is likely to meet the top political leadership of the country and discuss the whole gamut of relations.

Chairman Kerry has visited Pakistan four times since assuming chairmanship of the Committee in early 2009 and was the first high-ranking U.S. official to travel to Pakistan following the devastating floods in last summer.
In 2009, Chairman Kerry coauthored the “Enhanced Partnership with Pakistan Act of 2009,” also known as the Kerry-Lugar-Berman (KLB) act, which triples non-military foreign assistance to Pakistan to $1.5 billion per year over the next five years.
Kerry-Lugar-Berman was designed to signal our long-term strategic engagement with the people of Pakistan. — APP
