Pakistan's army chief General Raheel Sharif is set to visit the United States next week to hold talks with top officials on security issues including the stalled Afghan peace process, the military said Sunday.A senior Pakistani security official told AFP that the two sides would also discuss reconciliation in Afghanistan and Pakistan's ongoing military operations against Taliban militants in its northwestern tribal areas.The U.S. sees Pakistan as one of the few states with influence over the extremists, and the new Taliban leader Akhtar Mansour is believed to have close ties to Islamabad. General Sharif visited the U.S. last year, where he met with Secretary of State John Kerry and was awarded the U.S. Legion of Merit.
