Peace and stability can best be achieved through complementary efforts and enhanced cooperation, agreed military officials of Pakistan and Afghanistan in a high level meeting on Friday.

“A seven-member high-level Afghan military delegation led by Commander 201 Corps, Afghan National Army (ANA), Lt Gen Muhammad Zaman Waziri visited HQ 11 Corps Peshawar,” said the Inter-Services Public Relations in a statement.

The delegation held meetings with Commander Peshawar Corps Lt Gen Nazir Ahmed Butt. The meeting was also attended by Director Generals Military Operation (DGMOs) of both the armies and IG FC K-P, the communique read.

Pakistan urges comprehensive political plan for Afghan peace

“Both sides re-affirmed their resolve to continue their fight against terrorism,” it added.

Areas of mutual security interests and concerns including border security mechanism were deliberated upon during the interaction.

Islamabad blames Kabul for hosting militants responsible for carrying out attacks across the country. Afghanistan also routinely accuses Pakistan of providing safe haven to the Afghan Taliban.

    We’d love to have peace the Government of Afghanistan provided Afghanistan get a Government of their own in the national assembly. Current crop of people there are just mouth pieces much like Pakistan.
    What both people need to do is put their own houses in order and then peace will come naturally to the too nations. However, what complicates things is the nature of interest of world powers in the two countries.
    Gaining peace will be an uphill battle, but the focus should be internal.
    peace!Recommend
