Kabul, November 19: Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in Kabul on Thursday in his first official visit to meet with President Ghani and other Afghan leaders to discuss the Afghan peace process and bilateral ties.
This is Imran Khan’s first visit to Afghanistan since assuming office in August 2018.
He is accompanied by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Adviser for Commerce and Investment, and senior officials, Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
“The Prime Minister’s program includes tete-e-tete with President Ashraf Ghani, delegation-level talks, and joint press stake-out. The focus would be on further deepening the fraternal bilateral relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan, the Afghan peace process, and regional economic development and connectivity,” the statement said.
Khan’s visit is part of regular high-level exchanges between Pakistan and Afghanistan, the statement said.
President Ashraf Ghani had last visited Pakistan in June 2019. Earlier, the two leaders had a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the 14th OIC Summit in Makkah in May 2019.
Khan also had a telephonic conversation with President Ghani in September 2020. (Tolo News)
