First EU-Pakistan summit as bloc attempts to boost ties | Europe | Deutsche Welle | 10.05.2009
The European Union presidency plans to hold the bloc's first ever summit with Pakistan, in an attempt to help strengthen the country's civilian government.  

That's according to the Czech EU presidency source who released the information. He also said the summit will be held within weeks, with June 17 given as the provisional date.

The fight against terrorism -- including in neighboring Afghanistan -- is expected to top the meeting's agenda, but enhanced cooperation over the rule of law and measures to improve trade relations should also be discussed.

"The EU wants to help strengthen the civilian government in Pakistan by showing strong support on the highest level," the EU source said.
