Afghan president to soon visit Pakistan
Kabul: The Afghan Foreign Ministry says the country`s president will soon visit neighboring Pakistan in an effort to mend fences, and says it hopes that the new government in Islamabad will seek to improve tense relations.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Janan Mosazai told reporters Sunday that Hamid Karzai accepted an invitation delivered by Pakistan one week ago.
He says Afghanistan hopes the newly elected government of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif can open a new page in relations.
Relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan have been tense and Kabul has in the past charged that Islamabad has supported the Taliban in its fight against the government.
The senior Pakistani officials who delivered the invitation said then that Islamabad is seeking to mend frayed ties.
