Kabul (BNA) President Hamid Karzai met with Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Kehar this noon to discuss matters of mutual concern to the two countries.
BNA reported, the sides focused on issues including measures to further enhance the bilateral relations, the peace process and the threat of terrorism the two nations are facing.
The Afghan Foreign Minister Dr. Rasoul, Deputy Minister Jawed Ludin and Afghan Ambassador in Islamabad Mohd. Umer Daudzai, were also present in the meeting.
Mrs. Kehar said her visit to Afghanistan demonstrates her country’s gesture of a goodwill aimed at bolstering the good neighborly relations.
Minister Kehar also conveyed to President Karzai an invitation to attend the tripartite summit of Afghanistan-Pakistan and Iran scheduled to be held in mid-February in Pakistan.
Foreign Minister Kehar vowed that her country was fully supportive of the Afghanistan peace process.
While recognizing the effective role that Pakistan can play for the peace process in Afghanistan, President Karzai said insecurity in Afghanistan and in Pakistan has inflicted great harms to the people of the two countries and have held back the two nations from progress.
President Karzai called the extremism in the region a harmful scourge that stands in the way of progress and stability and said it was imperative for the two countries to eliminate the roots of the problem and take practical measures in ensuring peace and security.
