Afghan President visits Pakistan

Afghan President Hamid Karzai went into a key meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif soon after his arrival on Monday on a trip to seek support for the revival of peace talks with Taliban and to improve frayed ties with Islamabad.

State-run Pakistan Television showed Mr. Sharif receiving Mr. Karzai at the palatial Prime Minister House.

A Foreign Ministry official said that the two leaders will discuss all matters of “interest and concern” in the one-on-one meeting and then at the delegation-level talks.

The Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan said Mr. Karzai would urge Islamabad to use its influence with the militants to hold direct negotiations with the Kabul administration.
