The US minister will hold crucial dialogues with Pakistan as the US-led foreign forces’ withdraw from Afghanistan.

The talks are seen as important because the dialogue will indicate the nature of cooperation between the two countries in coming years after the US formally ended its 13-year-long and hard combat mission in Afghanistan.

Pakistan has often expressed a fear that the US may repeat the mistake of 1989 when it left the region in mess. The US has time and again assured that it has learnt from its mistakes and will not abandon the region.

During his stay, Kerry is also expected to meet the Army Chief (COAS) General Raheel Sharif to discuss the current regional security situation. A visit to the Army Public School in Peshawar is also on the cards.

The US Secretary of State’s visit to Pakistan comes right after his visit to India which is embroiled in border tensions with Islamabad. The subject is expected to feature in discussions between Pakistani officials and Kerry.

The sources said that Pakistan will brief Kerry about the worsening situation and its possible implications for the ongoing military offensive in the tribal areas.
