ISLAMABAD - In a meeting held in Peshawar on Saturday, military commanders from Pakistan and Afghanistan agreed to enhance coordination and security measures on both sides of the border.

An eight-member delegation of the Afghan National Army, headed by Corps Commander Lieutenant General Mohammad Sharif Yaftali, visited the Corps Headquarters Peshawar and called on Corps Commander Lieutenant General Hidayatur Rehman, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

The visit was a follow up of Army Chief General Raheel Sharif’s last visit to Afghanistan, during which it was decided that corps commanders from both sides would hold meetings for better border management.

The delegates discussed matters pertaining to mutual interest and security arrangements at the Pak-Afghan border, a statement from ISPR said. Both militaries have also established a hotline to exchange views on security matters in line with decisions taken during the army chief’s visit.
