Washington, Jan 05 (Agencies): Several world leaders, including Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and Afghan President Hamid Karzai, are expected to attend the memorial service of top US diplomat Richard Holbrooke who died here last month.

The memorial service for Holbrooke is scheduled for January 14.

In his capacity as the Special US Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Holbrooke was Obama Administration’s point man for the Afghan-Pakistan region.

"Ambassador Holbrooke's memorial is, I think, January 14 at the Kennedy Center. There are a number of world leaders who will be coming to the memorial, and I would expect that there would be some meetings around that not only from South Asia, but from other parts of the world as well," State Department spokesman PJ Crowley said.

There is a possibility of Pakistani President Zardari flying in from Islamabad to attend the memorial ceremony held in honour of Holbrooke, but it has not been confirmed yet.
