JIM WATSON/AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — The White House has announced that President Obama and Pakistani Prime Minister Yusef Raza Gilani will meet privately on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit next Tuesday in South Korea.

Deteriorating relations between Washington and Islamabad worsened after American airstrikes along the Afghan border mistakenly killed two dozen Pakistani soldiers last November.  Obama broke his promise to visit Pakistan in 2011 because of the strains in the relationship.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did meet recently with Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar at a conference in London.
