Sen. John Kerry has left for a trip to Pakistan today, according to his spokesperson on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Spokesman Frederick Jones said the trip comes at a time when the relationship is strained by the detention of a U.S. government official, Raymond Davis, suspected of killing two Pakistani men in self-defense during an alleged robbery attempt late last month in Lahore.

The U.S. was scheduled to host a trilateral meeting in Washington at the end of February, but the meeting was cancelled after Pakistan resisted U.S. demands to release Davis immediately.
