Pakistani PM to visit Kabul
ISLAMABAD (PAN): Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would visit Kabul in the near future for talks on greater cooperation and issues of bilateral importance, the foreign ministry announced on Wednesday.
But no dates had yet been firmed yet for the prime ministerial trip, Foreign Office spokesman Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry told his weekly media briefing in Islamabad.
Senior Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar was in Pakistan and could contact his family members, the spokesman said, adding his release was aimed to advance the Afghan peace and reconciliation process.
About Mullah Fazlullah, the new Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militant group, Chaudhry said Islamabad had asked Kabul several times not to allow the use of its territory against Pakistan.
In response to a question about recent drone attack in North Waziristan, he said a protest had been conveyed to the US ambassador. “We have also briefed the five permanent members of the UN Security Council about the illegal drone attacks.”
