PESHAWAR, 4 May: The governments of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) have agreed to constitute a joint working group for mutual cooperation.

Decision in this regard was taken in a meeting between AJK Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majeed and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak in Peshawar yesterday. Both the leaders discussed strengthening of historic relations between AJK and KP governments and initiation of new development, political and cultural projects.

During the meeting, Mr Khattak also highlighted problems faced by people from KP working in AJK. The chief minister said the KP citizens are treated as Afghans in AJK due to their (Pashto) language which causes problems for them in getting registration.

The AJK prime minister proposed construction of a 36-kilometer road between Azad Kashmir and KP to facilitate commuters and increase trade and business activities between the two regions.
