Obama Meets Pakistani President

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has joined U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House for talks.

Zardari flew to Washington for a memorial service for the late U.S. envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan, Richard Holbrooke, who died last month at the age of 69.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters on January 13 that Obama and Zardari were to discuss "aspects of the U.S.-Pakistan strategic partnership."

The presidential-level talks follow Vice President Joe Biden's trip to Islamabad this week, which saw him deliver a message of support for Pakistan.
