The Pakistani government on Monday summoned Britain's high commissioner to Islamabad over remarks made by the British prime minister on the export of terror that sparked a diplomatic row, officials said.

Top envoy Adam Thomson went into talks with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi at around 11:30 am (0630 GMT).

"The British high commissioner was summoned to foreign office today. He is in a meeting with the foreign minister," a Pakistani foreign ministry official said, saying details will be later issued in a statement.

"We can confirm the high commissioner is meeting foreign minister Qureshi," said a spokesman for the high commission.

"It's a meeting at the request of the foreign minister to discuss the prime minister's remarks," the spokesman said.

During a visit to Pakistan's arch rival India last week, Prime Minister David Cameron became mired in a diplomatic row with Islamabad over comments about the "export of terror" from Pakistan.
