CIA Director Leon Panetta has met with high-ranking Pakistani officials to repair ties between Washington and Islamabad, US and Pakistani officials say.

Panetta met Pakistani Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and the head of Pakistan's main spy agency, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha, in Islamabad on Friday.

Panetta's visit was his first to Pakistan since a US attack in the city of Abbottabad that allegedly killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden on May 2 (May 1 Washington time).

US officials say they want to rebuild a relationship vital to their campaign against al-Qaeda, the Associated Press reported.

Washington has launched drone strikes on several sites in Pakistan since the Abbottabad operation, intensifying anti-US sentiments in the country. Scores of people have been killed in the strikes.

The Pakistani parliament recently passed a resolution condemning the US attack in Abbottabad and demanding a review of ties with the US and other Western countries.
