    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier this week, US National Security Advisor Susan Rice traveled to Pakistan as part of her Asian tour to meet with country's senior officials to hold talks on various global pressing issues, including domestic security and terrorism threat, as well as the future of Pakistan-US relations.
