ISLAMABAD (AP) U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his Pakistani counterpart, Sartaj Aziz, said Thursday that the two countries will resume high-level negotiations over security issues and Kerry suggested then seemed to reverse himself that the disputed drone strikes could end soon.

Kerry also said he had invited Pakistan's newly elected prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, to come to Washington to meet with President Barack Obama.

"I'm pleased to announce that today, very quickly, we were able to agree to a resumption of the strategic dialogue in order to foster a deeper, broader and more comprehensive partnership between our countries," Kerry said at a news conference with Aziz in Islamabad.

He said the talks will cover "all of the key issues between us, from border management to counterterrorism to promoting U.S. private investment and to Pakistan's own journey to economic revitalization."
