Military officials from Pakistan and Afghanistan have agreed to hold more talks to defuse a row over a series of cross-border attacks, an Afghan defence ministry official said on Saturday.
Afghan and Pakistani delegations agreed to do what they could “to stop and prevent repetition of the attacks, and to pave the ground for further strengthening of mutual, friendly relations” said ministry spokesman Mohammad Zahir Azimi in a statement.
“There should be more coordination and high level talks between the authorities of the two countries to seek solutions for the present problems and future issues,” he said.
Officials from both militaries and from the US earlier met on Thursday in Peshawar to discuss a spike in tensions on the lawless border.
