PAKISTAN NEWS: Prime Minister Imran Khan to visit Afghanistan tomorrow

This will be the first time Prime Minister Imran has been to the war-torn country since taking office in 2018.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s ambassador to Afghanistan Mansoor Ahmed Khan announced on Wednesday that Prime Minister Imran Khan would arrive in Kabul on Thursday at the invitation of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

“Prime Minister Imran Khan is visiting Kabul tomorrow to meet with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to discuss strengthening bilateral relations,” Advocate Mansoor said.

Last week, Afghan Foreign Ministry spokesman Gran Hewad announced that the visit of Prime Minister Imran would focus on Afghanistan’s peace process and strengthen political, security, trade and economic relations would also be discussed during the visit.

“The visit comes in the wake of President Ghani’s telephone conversation with Imran Khan last month,” Hewad was quoted as saying by Afghanistan’s Tolo News.

This will be Prime Minister Imran’s visit to the war-torn country since taking office in 2018.

The trip comes as a stumbling block continues in Afghanistan peace talks held in Doha between the Afghan government and the Taliban to end a decade-long war in the country.

Prime Minister Imran has stressed that there is no military solution to the Afghan war. He also supported the peace process and political solution to the country brought about by the people of Afghanistan.

The Prime Minister has repeatedly stated that peace in Afghanistan will be beneficial to the entire region as it will create new opportunities for trade and economic cooperation and regional integration.

The visit comes a day after Prime Minister of Trade and Investment Advisor Abdul Razzak Dawood returned from a three-day trip to Afghanistan.

Dawood has held meetings with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and other national leaders.
