KABUL - NATO's top commander in Afghanistan, US General John Allen, will travel to Pakistan for talks in which he is expected to urge Pakistan to curb cross-border incursions by Haqqani militants blamed for several attacks in Kabul.

Allen, commander of the 130,000-strong NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan, will arrive Pakistan on Wednesday to review border coordination with Pakistan army chief General Ashfaq Kayani, Pakistan's military said.



Allen is also likely to raise mounting concern in Afghanistan about three attacks blamed on the Haqqani Network, which NATO believes is controlled from Pakistan, and which began in Kabul on April 15.

The latest occurred only last week when insurgent gunmen stormed a lakeside hotel on Kabul's outskirts and burst into a party, seizing dozens of civilian hostages and killing 20 people in a 12-hour siege ended by Afghan and foreign security forces.
