The delegation will meet other civilian and military officials to discuss the way forward for cooperation against militants who carry out attacks in both countries.

It will also visit the army headquarters in Rawalpindi for in-depth delegation-level talks on border security and the Afghan peace process.

This is the first high-level visit from Afghanistan in two years after relations slightly improved due to launching of Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity (APAPPS) earlier this year.

The two sides are meeting regularly under APAPPS to strengthen cooperation and address each other’s concerns, according to officials.
