Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to visit Pakistan

Islamabad, Nov 14 (ANI): Pakistan announced that the newly sworn-in Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was coming to Islamabad on a two-days' official visit to Pakistan. Addressing a weekly briefing, Pakistan's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Tasneem Aslam confirmed Ghani's visit. Analysts say Ghani's visit marks a renewed effort by the two neighbours to warm up ties that have been fraught with mutual suspicions. She said issues pertaining to border security will also come under discussion during the 2-days visit. Ghani's visit comes shortly after a recent trip to Kabul by Pakistan's Army chief, General Raheel Sharif, during which he offered to train Afghan security forces. The visit was widely seen as an ice-breaker aimed at addressing deepening suspicion among Afghanistan's security establishment about Pakistan. The visit to Islamabad will be Ghani's third trip abroad since his inauguration in September. He has recently visited Saudi Arabia and China. Nov 14, 2014
