PESHAWAR, 14 August: Pakistan and Afghanistan have agreed to make joint efforts for establishing peace in the region.

An Afghan delegation visited Pakistan on Thursday and held a meeting with Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz in Islamabad. The Afghan delegation was led by Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani and included Acting Defence Minister Masoom Stanikzai and intelligence chief Rehmatullah Nabil.

Mr Aziz said during the meeting that Pakistan and Afghanistan will promote mutual trust and discourage elements creating misunderstanding between the two neighbourly countries. Both sides emphasised on joint efforts for ending violence from the region. The two sides also agreed to maintain close contacts to promote bilateral cooperation and address issues of common concern.

The Afghan delegation’s visit to Pakistan came after President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah recently accused Pakistan of non-cooperation for eliminating extremism from the region.
