The APAPPS is a joint action plan for cooperation in the areas of counter-terrorism and reduction of violence, peace and reconciliation, Afghan refugees’ repatriation and joint economic development.
Earlier, a high-level Pakistani delegation led by Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua, visited Kabul on February 3 to hold a discussion with their Afghan counterparts on APAPPS.
Pakistan had proposed five joint working groups, which focus on ensuring comprehensive engagement for countering terrorism, intelligence sharing, military, economy, trade and transit interaction, refugee repatriation and connectivity.
A high-level Afghan delegation also visited Pakistan last week to discuss important issues of mutual interest. The delegation, comprising the Afghan interior minister and the chief of National Directorate of Security, met with Prime Minister Shahid Khan Abbasi.
