ISLAMABAD: The sixth round of ministerial level Pakistan-US strategic dialogue will be held in Washington today (Monday).

The six segments of the strategic dialogue include cooperation in economy and finance; energy; education, science and technology; law enforcement and counterterrorism; security, strategic stability and non-proliferation and defence.
