The visit came hours after army chief General Qamar Bajwa chaired a high-level meeting at the General Headquarters. The huddle decided in favour of collaborating with the Afghan government to combat terrorism.
Kabul has reacted angrily to cross-border shelling by Pakistani forces that decimated camps and training compounds of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and its splinter group Jamaatul Ahrar in Afghanistan.
The shelling was in response to the recent terror wave across the country, which claimed over 100 lives last week.
