June 20, 2016 Author: Vishwagujarat


Pakistani and Afghan delegations met on Monday in the first senior-level talks aimed at reducing tensions at the Torkham border.

"A six-member Afghan delegation is being led by Afghan Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Khalil Karzai," the Dawn quoted the Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria, as saying.

Zakaria added that the Pakistani side was being led by Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry.

Both sides will review all aspects of border issues and evolve a mechanism for better border management.

However, Pakistan reopened the Torkham border crossing for traffic on Saturday after a diplomatic push to end the Pak-Afghan row.
