Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari will attend the international donors conference in Tokyo April 17 to seek aid for his country in its struggle to overcome terrorism and economic challenges, the Foreign Ministry said Thursday.

He will hold a meeting with Prime Minister Taro Aso on April 16 during his three-day stay through April 17, it said.

Japan, which considers Pakistan a “frontline state” in fighting terrorism, especially given its unstable border areas with Afghanistan, will jointly host the conference with the World Bank.
