Pugwash launched a comprehensive track two effort that sought to bring together Pakistani and US experts to discuss Pakistan-US ties, arguably one of the most critical and complex interstate relations today. The effort was undertaken in two phases. Initially, a series of meetings was held with a broad spectrum of policy shapers in Pakistan in June 2009. The meetings were focused on the Pakistan-US bilateral relationship, but other topics related to regional stability were addressed as well. Secondly, Pugwash led a delegation from Pakistan to Washington, D.C. for a series of meetings and consultations with senior American policy makers and experts.
