Foreign office on Thursday in a statement said that the visit aimed at reducing mistrust between the two neighbours.

They have chose to operationalize the five working groups under "Afghanistan Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity".

The two sides also will discuss ways to ease tensions in bilateral relations and strengthen political, economic, security and counter-terrorism cooperation.
