WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will meet with Afghan President Hamid Karzai on the sidelines of the NATO summit on Sunday, the White House said, but there was no plan for Obama to have a bilateral get-together with his Pakistani counterpart while in Chicago.
White House national security adviser Tom Donilon told reporters on Thursday that Obama would certainly meet with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari during the course of the NATO summit, which Zardari is also attending. But there was no bilateral meeting between the two on the agenda.
Relations between Washington and Islamabad have been strained by a series of incidents, including the accidental killing of Pakistani soldiers on the border with Afghanistan by U.S. forces.
