ISLAMABAD - The US Central Command chief and the commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan will meet Pakistan's army chief on Wednesday, the Pakistan military said, the first high-level military contact since a cross-border US attack last November killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

Their talks, announced by the Pakistani military, take place a day after US President Barack Obama met Pakistani Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani in Seoul. He expressed hope that Pakistan's review of strained ties with Washington would respect US security needs.

The Pakistani parliament is reviewing recommendations from its national security committee on future ties with Washington. They include a halt to US drone strikes on militants in northwestern Pakistan and the possible reopening of overland supply routes to NATO troops in Afghanistan.

The routes were suspended after the Nov. 26 incident, which sparked rage across Pakistan.
