Afghan President Ghani meets PM Imran, discusses regional issues

During his stay, the Afghan President will hold delegation level talks with Prime Minister Imran Khan.

President Ghani will also travel to Lahore during the two-day visit, which is his third tour to Pakistan since 2014, as efforts have intensified to reach a political settlement and end decades of war in Afghanistan. Kabul for long has kept accusing Islamabad for supporting the Afghan Taliban. The two leaders agreed on the importance of crafting a forward-looking vision of Pakistan-Afghanistan relations.

Khan warmly greeted the Afghan president upon his arrival and the latter was given a guard of honour at the PM House.

Ghani, who faces an election in September, has so far not held direct talks with the Taliban, which has accused his government of being a "puppet" of the United States and refused to sit across the table.

Security, peace talks with the Taliban, regional connectivity, trade ties and investment will dominate the agenda during the meeting with the Pakistani leadership, said Chakhansuri.

Qureshi, during the meeting, said Pakistan will continue to play its role for peace in Afghanistan with sincerity, good intentions, and an open heart.
