KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday held a telephonic conversation with Pakistaninfo-icon’s prime minister in-waiting Imran Khan and congratulated him on victory in the general election.

The two leaders agreed to overcome the past and lay a new foundation for a prosperous political, social and economic future for their countries, Ghani wrote on his social media account.

“I just spoke to @ImranKhanPTI and congratulated him on the victory in parliamentary elections. We both agreed to overcome the past and to lay a new foundation for a prosperous political, social and economic future of both countries #Afghanistan and #Pakistan,” the president twitted.

Ghani invited Imran Khan to visit Kabul which he accepted and wished to visit Kabul soon. “I extended an open invitation to Mr. Khan and he expressed his wishes to visit Kabul soon.”

Earlier, Imran Khan during his victory speech linked peace in Afghanistan to stability in Pakistan.

"Afghanistaninfo-icon has suffered a lot in the war on terror and before that in the jihad. Peace in Afghanistan means peace in Pakistan," he said in a televised address to the nation.

In order to boost bilateral cooperation, the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman said he envisioned open borders with Afghanistan like those in the European Union.

His government would work to bring peace to Afghanistan, the cricketer-turned politician promised.  "I want both our countries to have open borders like countries in the European Union have.”

He also vowed to strengthen ties with Saudi Arabia, Iran and China.  Pakistan and India needed to sit across the negotiating table to address bilateral issues, he added.
