The leaders are due to meet their Tajik host Emomali Rahmon today (Sunday) along with a top US official to discuss the outcome of Karzai's February visit to Islamabad.

Presidents Zardari and Okilov are expected to discuss ways and means to further enhance bilateral, political, economic, defense and security relations. They will also reflect on the development of rail and road infrastructure and air connectivity between the two countries.
