Pakistan, US To Hold Strategic Dialogue On Monday Amid F-16 Row



Pakistan and the US will hold a ministerial-level strategic dialogue on key areas, including economy, security and counter terrorism, amid strong opposition by India as well as the US lawmakers on the proposed F-16 deal to Islamabad.
Advisor on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz will lead the Pakistani delegation while secretary of state John Kerry will lead the US side for the 6th round of the strategic dialogue to be held in Washington, Radio Pakistan reported. The six segments of the strategic dialogue include cooperation in economy and finance; energy; education, science and technology; law enforcement and counter terrorism; security, strategic stability and non-proliferation and defense.

Extra info:
  • Kerry has argued that these fighter jets are a "critical" part of Pakistan's fight against terrorists.
  • The key areas to be discussed including economy, security and counter terrorism.
  • The key meeting will take place soon after the US announced to sell eight F-16 fighter jets worth $700 million to Pakistan, despite objection from India



So lets do:
  • Who is the Advisor on Foreign Affairs pakistan?
  • Who is the U.S. Secretary of State?
