Cameron to Host U.K. Talks With Leaders of Afghanistan, Pakistan

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron will hold talks with the leaders of Afghanistan and Pakistan aimed at strengthening Afghanistan-Pakistan relations, support an Afghan peace and reconciliation process and promote regional peace and stability, his office said in a statement today.

“Discussions are expected to focus on the Afghan-led peace process and how the Pakistanis and international community can support it,” the statement issued on Cameron’s Downing Street website said. “We also expect the Afghans and Pakistanis to make further progress on the Strategic Partnership Agreement they committed to in September.”

The meeting, to be held tomorrow and Feb. 4, will include foreign ministers, chiefs of army staff, intelligence heads and the chair of the Afghan High Peace Council.
