Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel had a frank exchange on Monday about U.S. drone strikes against militants in remote areas of Pakistan, in the first visit by a Pentagon chief to the South Asian ally in almost four years. The United States has a complicated relationship with Pakistan and ties have been further soured by a dispute over unmanned military aircraft the United States uses to target militants in Pakistan's tribal areas on the Afghan border.
