KABULinfo-icon(PANinfo-icon): The US embassy in Kabul on Saturday confirmed that John Kerry, the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman, has arrived in Afghanistaninfo-icon, but did not provide details of his visit.

Kerry, a Democrat who is close to the Obama administration, had earlier said he expected to see "all the main players" in Pakistaninfo-icon to discuss difficulties in bilateral ties following the US raid that killed bin Laden in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

"A number of people suggested it would be good to get a dialogue going about the aftermath and how we get on the right track," Kerry told reporters in Washington.

USlawmakers have questioned whether Pakistan is really serious about fighting militants in the region after bin Laden was found living in Pakistan. Some American lawmakers have called for a suspension in US aid to Islamabad.

Pakistan, meanwhile, has rejected allegations that the killing showed Pakistani incompetence or complicity in hiding the al Qaeda leader.

Kerry has traveled to Pakistan before to try to tamp down crises. He was there in February to try to win the release of Raymond Davis, a former US special forces member who shot dead two Pakistanis in the city of Lahore.
