KABUL: Inter-Services Intelligence Director General Lt General Faiz Hameed arrived in Kabul on Saturday on a one-day visit to meet with Taliban leadership and discuss general security in Afghanistan.
The country’s top spy would debate measures to prevent spoilers and terrorist groups from exploiting the situation, the sources said.
The Taliban has previously praised Pakistan for its long-standing aid to Afghans. Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid believed Pakistan will continue to help.
Foreign nationals and Afghans escaping Taliban control would be repatriated and transited via Pakistan, according to the ISI DG.
Sources said Gen Hameed would meet with Taliban commanders to address problems affecting both nations, including the situation along the Pak-Afghan border.
The issue of border control will also be addressed, particularly for Afghans who pass everyday and return.
In the meeting with the Taliban leaders, the subject of outstanding requests from countries and international organisations for repatriation/transit via Pakistan and the need to establish the framework by which Pakistan might accept them would be addressed, sources informed The Express Tribune.
Several nations have asked Pakistan to offer transit facilities for their citizens and Afghans working for the allies.
The two sides will also address border management, particularly for Afghans who pass over everyday and return to their homeland, according to the sources.
Western media reports of massive refugee influx into Pakistan were also deemed false.
Pakistan wants the international community to stay involved in Afghanistan and assist reconstruct the country ravaged by warfare for almost four decades, while the West, particularly the UK, is hesitant.
