Eh, how much can they be discussing? Gen. Sharief has been there for quite a while now.

@Muhammad Usman:

"What a ‘proud moment’ for Pakistan. The Army chief meeting foreign minister of USA. He must have discussed ‘professional’ issues related to an army that is ‘foreign’ to Pakistan."

Good satirically stated truth. This picture of the Pak army chief discussing foreign policy with US Secretary of State (foreign minister) says it all about who control Pakistan's foreign policy. Can't imagine such a thing happening in any other democratic country.
