WASHINGTON - US and Pakistani spy chiefs, trying to mend rifts in a relationship that has grown increasingly sour, met at the CIA and agreed on steps to improve national security, a US official said on Thursday.

Lieutenant-General Ahmad Shuja Pasha made a brief visit to Washington, arriving on Wednesday and leaving on Thursday, to meet with Acting CIA Director Michael Morell and other intelligence officials.

"The discussions today between General Pasha and the acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency went very well," a US official said on condition of anonymity.

"They agreed on a number of steps that will improve Pakistani and US national security," the official said, without disclosing any more details.
