PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Top diplomats from Afghanistan and Pakistan have exchanged views on issues of common interest.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi met his Afghan counterpart Amir Khan Muttaqi on the sidelines of a regional huddle hosted by China.

Qureshi renewed Pakistan’s stout support for a peaceful, stable and prosperous Afghanistan and highlighted areas of close collaboration including trade, movement of people, and connectivity.

He informed Muttaqi of the outcome of the 48th Session of OIC Council of Foreign Ministers in Islamabad, where member states expressed solidarity with Afghanistan.

Pakistan welcomed the international community’s continued engagement with Afghanistan to advance the goals of a sovereign, stable and economically strong Afghanistan, he added.
