Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif discussed Pak-Afghan border coordination and the overall security situation in the region with Commander Resolute Support United States Forces in Afghanistan General John F Campbell.

According to an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement, General Campbell called on Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif on Thursday.

Matters of mutual interest were discussed between the two leaders.

Relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan have become relatively better after a regime change in the war-torn country and the December 16 Peshawar attack. Intelligence sharing and coordinated efforts along both sides of the border are high on the agenda to counter terrorism.

In April, Afghan army chief General Sher Muhammad Karimi was the first Afghan army chief to speak as chief guest at the Pakistan Military Academy Kakul in Abbotabad where a group of six Afghan army cadets are also receiving training.
