Pakistan army chief General Raheel Sharif and the Director General ISI arrived in Afghanistan on Tuesday on a day-long visit to discuss various security issues amid the ongoing operation against militants in border areas.

It is the second visit of General Raheel to Kabul since the horrific Peshawar school attack that killed 150 people, mostly students.

During the day-long visit, Pakistan military delegation “will meet senior military and political leadership,” said Military spokesman Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa.

He did not provide any further details about the purpose of the visit.

However, security sources said that fight against militancy is on the top of the agenda as the two sides have already agreed to increase security cooperation.

“The two sides will discuss coordinated military operation in the border areas and intelligence sharing to eliminate militancy,” the sources said.

Pakistan is also expected to push Kabul to take measures to neutralise threat of Taliban chief Mullah Fazlullah who is who is wanted for terrorism cases in the country.

The security cooperation between the two countries has increased since new Afghan president Asharaf Ghani took charge last year.
