"There is an understanding between the militaries that they will conduct a joint investigation and the foreign ministers agreed that that was the right way to go," he told reporters after a meeting between U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

Pakistan, an U.S. ally, has denounced Tuesday's attack on a border post in the Mohmand tribal region as "unprovoked and cowardly" and said it could undermine their cooperation.
