US President Barack Obama met his Pakistani counterpart Asif Ali Zardari twice, including a brief one-on-one conversation, on the sidelines of the NATO Summit in Chicago, the White House said.

"The President spoke briefly with President Zardari twice. First, they had a brief one-on-one conversation as they made their way into the ISAF meeting on Monday morning," the White House said.

Later this afternoon, President Obama had the chance to briefly speak with President Zardari and (Afghanistan) President (Hamid) Karzai, underscoring their shared commitment to an Afghan-led reconciliation process to bring the war to a responsible end, the White House said.

The meeting occurred shortly before the family photo, the statement said.
