Washington: The military to military relationship between the United States and Pakistan is on its road to recovery, a top Pentagon official has said, a day after senior US commanders met with their Pakistani counterparts.

Asserting that he was encouraged by the meeting, General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the US military`s Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the military to military relationship between the two countries is on its road to recovery.

However, there may be bumps in the road, he told reporters, hoping that some key issues between the two countries could be resolved before the NATO summit in Chicago in May.

Dempsey said that he has seen the "CliffsNotes" version of the meeting between the US Central Command commander, Marine Corps General James Mattis, the commander of NATO`s International Security Assistance Force, Marine Corps
General John Allen, and Pakistani Army General Parvez Ashfaq Kayani in Islamabad on Wednesday.
