ISLAMABAD: Pakistani and Afghan officials in a bilateral meeting at the Ministry of Defence in Kabul agreed to formulate an action plan seeking to improve security along the Pak-Afghan border through enhanced cooperation, an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) press release said on Thursday.

A six-member Pakistani delegation led by Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Maj Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza also held a trilateral meeting with Afghan and American officials at the ministry. The participants of the bilateral meeting discussed issues related to cross-border firing and attacks, counter-terrorism and coordinated actions on their respective sides along the border, as well as exchange of prisoners, the ISPR said. Pakistani and Afghan officials also agreed to make progress in line with commitments made at recent high-level meetings.

The participants of the Pak-US-Afghan trilateral meeting reaffirmed their resolve to fighting the common threat of terrorism, with each side expressing their commitment to eliminating the Islamic State group from the region through information-sharing and complementary and coordinated efforts, the ISPR handout read.
