PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistan and Saudi army chiefs have held talks on regional security, including efforts to bring peace to Afghanistan.

Currently on an official a visit to Riyadh, Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa met his Saudi counterpart Gen. Fayiadh Bin Hamed Al Rowaily on Wednesday.

Military cooperation between Islamabad and Riyadh would have a positive impact on peace and security in the region, Bajwa said in a statement from the Inter Services-Public Relations (ISPR).

The two sides conferred on issues of common interest, the regional security situation, including the Afghan peace process, and military-to-military cooperation.

Gen.  Fayiadh assured the COAS of full cooperation and support from Riyadh for all initiatives aimed at improving regional cooperation, peace and stability.

Gen Bajwa arrived in Riyadh on May 4 ahead of a crucial trip by Prime Minister Imran Khan to the oil-rich kingdom later this week.
