WASHINGTON, July 14 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will attend a high-level dialogue in Pakistan later this month, a senior U.S. official said on Wednesday.

"While the Kabul Conference has attracted more international attention, the Secretary's visit to Islamabad will be equally significant," said U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke, who will join Clinton for the visit.

"During her upcoming visit to Pakistan, Secretary Clinton will reconvene the Strategic Dialogue with Foreign Minister (Shah Mehmood) Qureshi to assess growing cooperation on topics ranging from energy and water, to education and health, to counter- terrorism and defense issues," he said.

Clinton is scheduled to attend an important donors conference in Kabul on July 20, where the Afghans will ask international donors to make contributions to the development funds for the war- torn country.
