    Pakistani premier due in Kabul tomorrow

    KABUL (PAN): Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf is scheduled to arrive in Kabul on his first official trip on Thursday for talks with President Hamid Karzai and other Afghan officials on enhanced bilateral cooperation.

    Heading a high-level delegation, Ashraf would meet Karzai and other government figures on issues of bilateral importance, Pakistan embassy Press Attaché Akhtar Munir Khan told Pajhwok Afghan News.

    In Islamabad, prime ministerial spokesman Akram Shaheedi told a media briefing Ashraf would confer with his hosts on the Afghan-led reconciliation process with the Taliban militants.

    Cross-border attacks from Afghan soil on Pakistani forces would also figure at the meetings, he said, renewing Islamabad’s support for a peace drive that did not hurt the interest of any country.
