Islamabad, May 20 (IANS) Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has arrived in Chicago to attend a key NATO summit.
Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar and Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbass Jilani are accompanying him, Geo TV reported Sunday.
US President Barack Obama will host the two-day summit starting Sunday.
It will focus on plans to hand over security control to Afghan forces and the withdrawal of foreign combat troops by 2014.
NATO has urged Pakistan to back efforts to stabilize Afghanistan.
Pakistan was expected to lift a six-month blockade of NATO supply trucks to Afghanistan.
It was put in place after a NATO air raid on two Pakistani border posts in November last year killed 26 Pakistani soldiers.
The coalition has also urged Pakistan to do more to prevent Afghan insurgents from taking shelter in the country.
