NATO SCR, Gen.  Bajwa Discuss Afghan Peace Process

KABUL - NATO Senior Civil Representative in Afghanistan Sir Nicholas Kay on Thursday called on Pakistan Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, according to a media report.
Matters related to peace and stability in the region, Pak-Afghan border management and reconciliation process in Afghanistan were discussed, the Express Tribune reported.
Two days earlier, the Afghan national security adviser held crucial talks with Pakistani authorities, including the army chief, as part of the latest push by the two neighbours to remove irritants in their bilateral ties that have undermined efforts for a peace deal in Afghanistan.
Hamdullah Mohib – who led a high-powered delegation that included the Afghan interior minister – was the first senior Afghan official to travel to Islamabad in months.
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani sent the delegation to Pakistan after he spoke to Prime Minister Imran Khan by the phone last month.
Imran Khan, while renewing Pakistan’s commitment to making genuine efforts for a peace deal, invited President Ghani to visit Islamabad.
According to diplomatic sources, Mohib’s tour is part of preparations for a visit by Ghani, who is expected to travel to Pakistan next month.  (Pajhwok)
