Next U.S.-Afghan-Pakistan summit after Afghan poll: U.S.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States, Afghanistan and Pakistan will hold a trilateral summit after the Afghan presidential election in August, the special U.S. envoy for the region said on Thursday, citing progress in getting often fractious American allies to work together.

“I hope the American public sees that we’re making progress in the question for real cooperation between Afghanistan and Pakistan, because without that cooperation, success is not achievable” envoy Richard Holbrooke told reporters after a Senate meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari.
