Kerry in Pakistan to Discuss Drones, Afghan War

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Pakistan for meetings concerning American drone strikes, the war in neighboring Afghanistan and the fight against Islamist extremism.

Kerry came to Islamabad ahead of meetings Thursday with key civilian and military leaders, including newly elected Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and army chief of staff, General Ashfaq Kayani.

Anti-American sentiment runs high in Pakistan, which says the United States fails to appreciate the sacrifices it has made in fighting terror.

But U.S. officials say they are hopeful Mr. Sharif's election and the impending withdrawal of U.S.-led troops from Afghanistan offers a new opportunity to recast relations.

The Obama administration has not sent its top diplomat to Pakistan since 2011.
