7 May 2019

The United States has asked Pakistan and Afghanistan to remove each other’s misunderstandings through high-level meetings, officials said.

Senior officials at the Pakistan foreign ministry told Pakistan’s The Nation that a top-level meeting between Pakistan and Afghanistan was expected soon.

“We are in contact (with Afghanistan) for a meeting between Prime Minister Imran Khan and (Afghanistan) President Ashraf Ghani. This (meeting) could take place soon,” said one official.

He said Pakistan had never run away from talks be it with Afghanistan or India. “In fact we have always been advocating the dialogue process,” he added.

Another official said Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan had already invited President Ghani to visit Pakistan. “The visit is under consideration. The meeting can take place in either country,” he maintained.

Over the weekend, Pakistan and Afghanistan agreed to make efforts for availing their geographic locations to enhance regional connectivity.

President Ghani telephoned Prime Minister Khan wherein they “discussed bilateral ties and agreed to realise the true economic potential of the two countries for socio-economic development, poverty alleviation and welfare of the two peoples,” said an official statement.

The two leaders exchanged views on matters relating to peace, security and prosperity in Afghanistan and the region, it said.
