PM Imran Khan Expected to  Visit Afghanistan Next Week

ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected to pay a one-day visit to Afghanistan next week over the invitation of the Afghan president, ARY News reported on Friday.
As per details, the prime minister will discuss the Afghan peace process and bilateral ties with the top Afghan leadership. However, the date of his visit has not been made public due to security reasons.
On November 12, Afghan ambassador to Pakistan met COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa and discussed issues related to security and Afghan peace process.
The Afghan envoy's visit comes amid the ongoing intra-Afghan talks. Pakistan has played a key role in taking the peace process between the Afghan government and the Taliban forward.
