Bilateral relations and matters relating to border management and repatriation of Afghan refugees came under discussion during the meeting.
Last night, in an interview with state TV, Sartaj Aziz said that India is openly interfering in Afghanistan’s institutions and therefore Pakistan cannot afford a loose and open border with Afghanistan.
