Kerry to visit Pakistan to discuss US ties

WASHINGTON - US Senator John Kerry said on Tuesday he would travel to Pakistan in the coming days to discuss "all the relevant issues" with Islamabad after the US killing of Osama bin Laden.
Kerry, a Democrat who is close to the Obama administration, said he expected to see "all the main players" in Pakistan to discuss difficulties in bilateral ties following the US raid that killed bin Laden in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
"A number of people suggested it would be good to get a dialogue going about the aftermath and how we get on the right track," Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told reporters in Washington.
US lawmakers have questioned whether Pakistan is really serious about fighting militants in the region after bin Laden was found living in Pakistan. Some American lawmakers have called for a suspension in US aid to Islamabad.
