Pakistan’s Dawn Newspaper has cited a number of Pakistani officials that a high-level delegation led by National Security Advisor Moeed Yusuf will be visiting the Afghan capital Kabul for discussion over the humanitarian situation of Afghanistan.

He is supposed to be visiting Kabul on January 18-19 and will discuss bilateral issues and focus on Pakistan’s efforts for averting a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, reported Dawn.

Earlier, it was believed that the Pakistani delegation will mainly discuss recent conflicts across the Durand Line between Pakistani and Afghan border guards.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has also confirmed that visit but they said that the formation of delegation and exact date has not been finalized yet.

Pakistani officials have said that the purpose of the visit is to ascertain the humanitarian, economic, and development needs of Afghanistan in various sectors.

The visit comes as Imran Khan’s statement over sending qualified manpower to Afghanistan triggered a furious reaction in Afghanistan but Pakistan has said that Khan’s statement has been misreported and misunderstood.
