U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has arrived in Pakistan at the start of a tour of South Asia aimed at refining the goals of the nearly 9-year-old war in Afghanistan.
She wants to push neighboring countries to cooperate in the fight against al-Qaida and Taliban extremists.
Clinton landed Sunday in Islamabad where she will underscore the need for Afghan-Pakistani cooperation in winning the war. She will also announce plans to beef up U.S. development assistance to Pakistan, which is rife with anti-American sentiment.
After a day of talks in Pakistan, she will attend an international conference on Afghanistan in Kabul.
