National Security Adviser Ajit Doval on Wednesday met Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and his counterpart Hamdullah Mohib during an unannounced two-day visit to Kabul.

“Both sides discussed expansion of cooperation in countering terrorism and strengthening regional consensus on the Afghan peace process,” said Afghan President’s spokesman Sediq Sediqqi.

“The Afghan National and Defence Security Forces are the righteous pillars of Afghanistan’s stability, the front lines against regional and global terrorism… in collaboration with NATO and the US could achieve more success in the fight against terrorism,” the President said.

Doval arrived in Kabul days after US Afghan envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, followed by a top US military official, met Pakistan Army officials at Rawalpindi. “The two sides held extensive conversations on issues of strategic mutual interest, including on synchronising efforts to combat terrorism and build peace,” said a statement from the Afghan NSA’s office. Mohib also met Chinese Ambassador Wang Yu.
