PM Nawz Sharif meets Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and invites him for Pakistan Visit

PARIS: The leaders of Pakistan and Afghanistan met in Paris on Monday to discuss ways to resurrect peace talks with Taliban insurgents and to improve relations between the neighbours that soured earlier in the year after a string of militant attacks in Kabul. Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's office released a statement saying he had met Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on the sidelines of the climate change summit in the French capital. "Discussions were also held on the resumption of the peace and reconciliation process" aimed at ending the 14-year-old Afghan war, the statement said. "Both leaders agreed to work with all those who would enter such a process as legitimate political actors, and act, alongside the Afghan government, against those who refuse to take the path of peace." Nawaz Sharif also invites Afghan President to come Pakistan. Relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan improved in the early days of Ghani's presidency, but quickly deteriorated after a series of major bombings in the Afghan capital, Kabul, that some blamed on militants based in Pakistan. In end, the Prime Minister of Pakistan said to Afghan President that ""Pakistan would take all efforts to tackle the menace of terrorism facing the two countries". Source: Reuters
