Islamabad, Mar. 15 (ANI): America's National Intelligence Director Dennis C Blair is set to arrive in Islamabad to kickstart discussions on a Pak-US strategic dialogue.

Washington and Islamabad have agreed to co-operate in the fields of education, science and technology, with both sides committing to holding dialogues on energy and education.

Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani chaired a high-level meeting on Saturday to develop a "comprehensive, coherent and well-coordinated approach" for the forthcoming Pak-US strategic dialogue. (ANI)
