PM Imran Khan may visit Afghanistan next week

Prime Minister Imran Khan is likely to pay a one-day visit to Afghanistan next week over the invitation of the Afghan president, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday, citing sources.

The sources further said Imran Khan will pay a one-day visit to Afghanistan next week where he will discuss the Afghan peace process and bilateral ties with the top leadership. However, the date of his visit was not made public due to security reasons.

The sources added that the premier's upcoming visit to Afghanistan is being said a 'very important event'.

Earlier on November 2, US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad called on Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi.

Both of them discussed the regional security situation and the Afghan peace process besides also discussing Pakistan-Afghan border management and measures needed for lasting peace in

the neighbouring war-torn country.

Zalmay Khalilzad lauded the efforts of Pakistan for peace in the region during his meeting with COAS Qamar Javed Bajwa.

It is pertinent to mention here that Zalmay Khalilzad, who had remained active in finalizing a historic deal between the United States and Afghan Taliban, is now working with Pakistan to make intra-Afghan dialogue a success. He had frequently visited the country and met with the COAS Qamar Javed Bajwa for the purpose.

A few days ago, Afghan ambassador to Pakistan also held talks with Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
