A high-powered delegation from the United States has been visiting Pakistan these days. There is the possibility that Pakistan will be told in clear terms to take effective steps against terrorism.  Most of the tribesmen think that elimination of terrorism is a must before introduction of democracy in Pakistan. In the presence of terrorism democracy cannot flourish.

Pakistani media reports said that the second round of Pakistan-United States strategic dialogue to promote bilateral relations and expand cooperation in various fields was underway at Foreign Office in Islamabad.

US Deputy Secretary of State John D. Negroponte was leading the American team in talks.

Negroponte, along with Assistant Secretary of State for South Asia Richard Boucher and other top US officials reached Islamabad Wednesday morning.

Negroponte called on Pakistan’s Foreign Secretary Riaz Muhammad Khan before formal opening of the talks.

The officials are holding talks on a four-point agenda including education, energy, economic cooperation and science and technology.

The two sides would also discuss US legislation for setting up Reconstruction Opportunity Zones in tribal areas and other regional and international issues.
