The USA is set to release a massive aid for Pakistan
Sources in the White House said the USA is set to release a massive economic and military aid worth $1.6 billion to improve ties with Islamabad. The relation between the two traditional allies saw a sharp deterioration in the wake of the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan and also the USA's continuous drone attacks against terrorists on the Pakistani soil.
Kerry lauded Pakistan's democracy and said it was trying hard to fix its economy and deal with the insurgency problem.
Sharif, however, did not speak to the reporters.
