U.S. Sen. John Kerry says he and Pakistani leaders have agreed on a "series of steps" to improve their nations' fraying ties.
The senator did not specify what those steps are but he says they will "be implemented immediately in order to get this relationship back on track."
Kerry was in Pakistan on Monday amid high tensions over the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden in the South Asian country's northwest.
Pakistan says the raid violated its sovereignty.
Kerry insists the secrecy surrounding the May 2 raid on bin Laden was crucial to assuring its success, and that he himself did not learn of it until afterward.
