Islamabad - Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari called on Monday for his government and the United States to agree on "clear terms of engagement" in the fight against Islamist militants to avert troubles in their relationship.

Zardari's remarks, the first such call by the Pakistani president, came at a meeting with US envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Marc Grossman.

"In the absence of well-defined and documented terms of engagements, wrong plugs may be pulled at the wrong times by any side that could undermined the bilateral relations," Zardari's office said in a statement after the meeting.

"Terms of engagement should be clearly defined and specified so that any dispute could be settled amicably through the available institutions."
