A delegation of Afghan army officials, headed by Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Afghan National Army Maj Gen Afzal Aman, visited the General Headquarters (GHQ) and met his Pakistani counterpart Maj Gen Ashfaq Nadeem Ahmed over border coordination, The Express Tribune reported.

According to a press release issued by Inter-Services Public Relation ISPR, “All ongoing cross-border coordination issues, including border post construction in Mohmand Agency, were discussed and amicably resolved.”

The source further added, “The meeting was held in a cordial environment.”
