KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The sixth joint meeting of Afghan and Pakistaninfo-icon journalists got under way in Kabul on Sunday, supporting enhanced media cooperation and interaction between the two countries.

The week-long sitting was organised by an international organisation called Equal Access. One of the participants, Asadullah Daudzai, said the idea was to boost cooperation between Afghan and Pakistani journalists.

Both sides would have the opportunity to exchange their views on different issues, he said, adding an eight-member team of Pakistani journalists would visit some of historical sites in Kabul and other areas in the next six days.

The programme was initiated last year when it was decided journalists of Pakistan and Afghanistaninfo-icon would exchange visits in four phases.

Pakistani journalist Sana Ijaz told Pajhwok Afghan News: “We have come Kabul to closely see conditions in Afghanistan and to work for a positive change in relations between the neighbours. We will share our views with Pakistan officials.”

The fifth round of the meetings was held two months ago when Afghan journalists visited Lahore, the capital of Pakistan’s Punjab province.
