Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi arrived in Kabul on Friday morning. He is expected to hold face-to-face talks with President Ashraf Ghani.
According to a Presidential Palace official, Abbasi will also meet with Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and with other political leaders.
Abbasi was welcomed by President Ashraf Ghani and his cabinet members when he arrived at the Presidential Palace at around 10:50am Kabul time.
A source says the focus of discussion will be on three issues – cross-Durand Line rocket attacks by Pakistan, the reported existence of the Taliban in Pakistan, and Pakistan’s apparent involvement in the war in Afghanistan.
Abbasi and Ghani are expected to hold a joint press conference on Friday after their meeting.
This comes after President Ghani officially extended an invitation to the Pakistan prime minister to visit Kabul for face-to-face talks in order for the two countries to resolve issues and jointly work towards forging peace in the country.
