President Obama and the prime minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, are set to meet Wednesday, a day after Amnesty International released a report criticizing the extent of Pakistani civilian deaths from U.S. drone strikes. The findings come as relations between the two countries are starting to warm after a major breakdown following the 2011 raid on Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan. The White House has recently pledged over $1.5 billion in military and economic aid to the country. We discuss the meeting and its implications.

Guests:

Daniel Markey, senior fellow for India, Pakistan, and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations; and author of "No Exit from Pakistan: America's Tortured Relationship with Islamabad"

Mehlaqa Samdani, Executive Director, Critical Connections

James Cavallaro, director of the Stanford International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic, and director of the Stanford Human Rights Center

Nick Childs, World Affairs Correspondent, BBC
