Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie met with Pakistan's Prime Minister SHAUKAT AZIZ in Islamabad today (04MAY05) to commend and thank him for hosting Afghan refugees.

The Tomb Raider beauty's visit with Aziz came two days after a census showed that more than 3 million Afghans were living in Pakistan. Millions of Afghans have fled to Pakistan to escape wars and poverty since 1979, when Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan.

Jolie, who is a UNITED NATIONS goodwill ambassador, will meet Afghan refugees during her three-day stay, say officials.

She accepted an invitation from Aziz to be the keynote speaker at a donors conference to raise funds for Afghan refugees which will be hosted by Pakistan later this year (05).

Jolie began working with the UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR REFUGEES in 2001.
