A Foreign Ministry official said Mr. Hagel would meet Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and several senior officials.

Bilateral relations came under renewed stress after Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud was killed in a US drone attack in November. Pakistan alleged that he was targeted to sabotage peace talk with the militants.
