U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Ambassador Richard Holbrooke arrived in Islamabad Monday.

"I am delighted to be visiting Pakistan again and welcome this opportunity to meet with a variety of Pakistani leaders on a wide range of issues," Holbrooke said on arrival.

"As President (Barack) Obama's and Secretary of State (Hillary) Clinton's Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, I am here to listen and learn the ground realities of this critically important country," he said. "The United States looks forward to reviewing our policies and renewing our commitment and friendship with the people of Pakistan."

During his two-day visit, Holbrooke will meet with elected officials, senior military leaders, and representatives of the private sector and civil society for consultations on a variety of bilateral and regional issues.

"I look forward to my continued consultations with leaders in Pakistan and in the region and will be reporting my findings and conclusions to President Obama and to Secretary of State Clinton upon my return to the United States," he added.

This is Holbrooke's first visit to Pakistan in his new role as Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan.
