ISLAMABAD - A high-level Afghan delegation, comprising Interior Minister and National Directorate of Security (NDS) chief, arrived Pakistan on Wednesday and is expected to call on Pakistani officials for discussions about cooperation between the two countries.

Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Dr. Mohammad Faisal in a tweet said, "Afghan government had requested that a high level delegation comprising Interior Minister and NDS chief would like to visit Pakistan with a message from Afghan President and for discussions about cooperation between the two countries. Delegation is here and will have talks today".

The call for the meeting comes days after terrorists carried out a series of attacks in Afghanistan's capital city, Kabul. Tolo News quoting sources claimed that the Afghan authorities will hand over evidence regarding the attacks.

On Monday, Kabul faced the third major terror attack in recent days when a suicide attack was carried out on an Afghan army battalion outside the Marshal Fahim National Defense University, killing 11 troops.

On Saturday, an ambulance-bomb attack in Afghanistan’s capital city killed over 100 people and injured scores.
