ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and Afghanistan will hold high-level talks in London on Wednesday to ease the current tensions between the two neighbouring countries, said Afghan ambassador Omar Zakhilwal.
“I will join our National Security Adviser Hanif Atmar at the high-level Afghanistan-Pakistan meeting to be hosted by the British government in London on Wednesday,” the Zakhiwal wrote on his Facebook account.
Adviser on Foreign Affairs to the Prime Minister Sartaj Aziz, and British National Security Adviser Mark Lyall Grant will attend from Pakistan and Britain respectively, the ambassador said.
The meeting will focus on a mechanism for genuine Pak-Afghan cooperation on fighting terrorism, the current tense bilateral relations and the closures of crossing routes between the two countries, he added.
