Karzai, Pearce confer on trilateral talks
Before his arrival in Kabul, Pearce met senior Pakistani diplomats on working jointly for promoting the peace process in Afghanistan and stabilising the wider region.
A statement from Karzai’s office said a planned trilateral meeting among the US, Afghanistan and Pakistan during the president’s visit to Brussels also came up for discussion.
US Secretary of State John Kerry will host the three-way talks between President Karzai and senior Pakistan officials on Wednesday, foreign media quoted a senior State Department official as saying said.
From Kabul, Ambassador Pearce will travel to Brussels from April 23-24 to accompany Secretary of State John Kerry for a meeting of NATO foreign ministers.
US Ambassador to Afghanistan James B. Cunningham and Special Assistant to US President Dagulas Lute also attended the meeting, which came at a time when tension is running high between Kabul and Islamabad.
