Pak COAS Gen. Bajwa to visit Kabul today

Kabul/Islamabad [Afghanistan/Pakistan], October 1 : The Chief of Army Staff General of Pakistan, Qamar Javed Bajwa, is set to arrive in Kabul at the head of a high-level delegation today, an Afghan official has said.

General Qamar Javed Bajwa is undertaking a crucial visit to Afghanistan, where his delegation will discuss with the Afghan counterparts "ways to strengthen bilateral security cooperation and border management efforts," according to a Voice of America report.

Gen. Bajwa is also scheduled to meet with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, a Pakistani official told VOA. No official details of Bajwa's expected engagements in Kabul have, however, been announced. General Bajwa is expected to emphasise the need for the two countries to resolve differences by relying on bilateral mechanisms and dialogue.

The Afghan Government and the United States have, time and again, alleged that the Taliban insurgents use sanctuaries on Pakistani soil for launching attacks in Afghanistan.

Pakistan, however, rejects the charges. A discussion on this is also expected to take place..
