Top Afghan officials to arrive in Islamabad amid tensions
ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) - A high level Afghan delegation will arrive in Islamabad on Thursday to hold dialogue with Pakistani counterparts in an attempt to restore bilateral ties after Kabul blamed Islamabad for involvement in recent bombings in Afghan capital.

Afghan intelligence chief Rahmatullah Nabil, acting defense minister Masoom Stanekzai, national security adviser Hanif Atmar and foreign minister Salahuddin Rabbani are part of the delegation, claimed Afghan media on Wednesday.

Earlier on Monday Afghan president Ashraf Ghani, while addressing the nation, stated that Friday's Shah Shaheed bombing - which left 15 people dead and over 400 mostly civilians injured - was unacceptable and that Islamabad was behind recent violence in Kabul. The only message we are getting from Pakistan is of war, he said.
