KABUL -- Afghan President Ashraf Ghani Tuesday (June 12) met with Pakistani Chief of Army Staff Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa in Kabul to discuss their countries' security, Ghani's office said in a statement.
The two sides discussed the implementation of the Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace, the fight against terrorism and violence and the Afghan-led peace process, said the statement.
In February, Bajwa visited Kabul to meet with top regional military chiefs as well as US CENTCOM commander Gen. Joseph Votel.
Pakistani Foreign Office spokesman Dr. Muhammad Faisal in a statement Saturday (June 9) reiterated Pakistan's support for "recent peace initiatives in Afghanistan", referring to declared cease-fires between the Afghan government and the Taliban for Eid, Geo News reported.
"We particularly support all Afghan-owned and Afghan-led efforts aimed at bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan," he said.
How likely is it that the Taliban will join peace talks with the Afghan government in time for parliamentary elections in October?
