David Cameron greets Asif Ali Zardari at Chequers

Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari and UK Prime Minister David Cameron have met for an informal dinner amid continuing diplomatic tensions.

Their meeting at the prime minister's country retreat, Chequers, comes the day before formal talks between the two.

Officials hope the strain caused by Mr Cameron's recent comments, that elements in Pakistan were promoting terrorism, will begin to ease.
