Pak may repatriate United States diplomat: Report

Islamabad, Feb 16 (PTI) After weeks of tense standoff, the US and Pakistan may be nearing an arrangement to repatriate US official Raymond Davis with the government expected to concede in court that the American qualifies for diplomatic immunity under the Vienna Convention.

The government's counsel is expected to testify on Davis's diplomatic status when the Lahore High Court reconvenes tomorrow.

The government's position, though not publicly disclosed, was finalised at a high-level meeting convened to devise a strategy on the Davis case, in view of the visit of US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry who is in Pakistan as a special envoy of the Obama administration.
