U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is in Pakistan to visit U.S. military personnel helping the country recover from a massive October earthquake.
Mr. Rumsfeld arrived on Wednesday, and was meeting some of the more than 800 U.S. military personnel in the nation.
The U.S. military has sent field medical facilities to treat victims, and at least a dozen helicopters to deliver aid to remote areas hit by the quake.
Tuesday, Vice President Dick Cheney toured Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani Kashmir and the center of relief efforts for millions of quake survivors.
He also met President Pervez Musharraf in Islamabad and expressed "deep sorrow" for the disaster that killed more than 73-thousand people.
