ISLAMABAD – Afghanistan National Cricket team has presented a signed bat to Prime Minister Imran Khan during his maiden visit to Kabul on Thursday.
According to Prime Minister’s Office, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was also present on the occasion.

Earlier today, Imran Khan has assured that Pakistan will take all possible steps to end violence and establish durable peace in Afghanistan.
He was addressing the joint press stakeout with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani after their talks in Kabul on Wednesday.
The premier, who is on a day-long visit in Kabul, said Pakistan deeply desired peace in the neighbouring Muslim country.
