ISLAMABAD:First meeting of Pakistan-Afghanistan Joint Working Group will be held in Kabul today (Saturday).

This was announced by Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal during weekly news briefing here on Friday.

The Spokesperson said Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua will lead the Pakistani delegation. He said Pakistan had proposed five joint working groups which focus on ensuring comprehensive engagement for countering terrorism, intelligence sharing, military, economy, trade and transit interaction, refugee repatriation and connectivity.

He said Pakistan has always maintained that there is no military path to peace and stability in Afghanistan and only an Afghan led and Afghan owned peace process will ensure peace there.

He said the endless cycle of violence in Afghanistan for decades will only add to the woes of people of that country including the Afghan refugees in Pakistan who will not be able to return to their homes and reunite with their beloved ones.
