US President to Visit Pakistan in 2011

21 October 2010 , 10:38RIA Novosti1553

"The President explained that he would not be stopping in Pakistan during his trip to Asia next month, and committed to visiting Pakistan in 2011, as well as welcoming President [Asif Ali] Zardari to Washington," the statement said.

Obama met on Wednesday with the Pakistani delegation to the U.S.-Pakistan Strategic Dialogue discussing various issues including the fight against Taliban militants.

Violence surged in Pakistan in 2009, with Taliban militants staging regular attacks on provincial government officials, police and civilians and planting roadside devices as part of their fight against U.S. and NATO troops.

Over 600 militants, including several influential Taliban commanders, were killed in U.S. and NATO drone airstrikes in northwest Pakistan near the Afghan border in 2009.
