The UAE Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan have reportedly agreed to work jointly for peace and stability in Afghanistan.
The two leaders on Sunday held talks here on bilateral matters and strongly condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, and expressed their resolve to work closely to root out the scourge, said a joint statement issued at the conclusion of the visit, Xinhua reported.
“The Crown Prince recognised the efforts and unparalleled sacrifices made by Pakistan to eliminate terrorism and extremism,” the statement said.

The two leaders agreed to work closely for the lasting peace and stability of Afghanistan. The UAE hosted Pakistan-facilitated talks between the Taliban and US officials in Abu Dhabi weeks ago.
Khan briefed the UAE leader about the efforts Pakistan has made to support and facilitate the Afghan-owned and Afghan-led reconciliation process. He also appreciated the role the UAE has been playing in the reconciliation talks, the statement said.

The two sides also agreed to explore further collaboration in areas of training, joint exercises and defence production.
