Afghan president vows new security plan for Kabul

04 February 2018

The first meeting of Pakistan Afghanistan Joint Working Groups will be held in Kabul today (Saturday) amid hopes for strengthening cooperation.

In a televised speech to the nation, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Friday alleged that the "centre of Taliban terrorism is in Pakistan" and demanded that authorities in the neighbouring country "show some concrete action to rid their territory of insurgents", reported the Dawn.

"There are still important areas to be discussed and agreed upon, and both sides remain committed to continue their discussions to reach an agreement on the APAPPS", said a joint statement released after the meeting.

Afghanistan slammed Pakistan for the deadly attacks on its soil and accused the country of harbouring the Taliban.

This comes days after a high-level Afghan delegation visited Pakistan. Crucially, any talks would also require a U.S. administration that knows what it wants to say.
