ISLAMABAD - Officials say two high-level Obama administration officials have launched a push to try repair relations with Pakistan following the US raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
The visit by Marc Grossman, special envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan, and Michael Morell, deputy director of the CIA, comes as a new survey by the Washington-based Pew Research Center highlights US unpopularity in Pakistan. Only 11 percent of Pakistanis view the US favorably.
US Embassy spokesman Alberto Rodriguez said Grossman was scheduled to meet top civilian and military leaders on Thursday in Islamabad.
Pakistani officials said Morrel was scheduled to meet with Pakistani intelligence chief Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of sensitivity of issue.
