“It would be a substantive visit as Amir Khan Mutaqqi is a key member in the Taliban set-up,” the Pakistani official said. Earlier, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who had visited Kabul had invited Muttaqi to Islamabad.

Furthermore, Qureshi on several occasions had said that improving the security situation in Afghanistan is in the best interest of Pakistan which we will support in every possible way.

Meanwhile, Qureshi on his visit to Kabul had discussed reviving existing bilateral mechanisms and institutional frameworks such as the Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity (APAPPS) to sort out differences both states are engaged in and to remove hurdles in the implementation of decisions for the betterment of Pak- Afghan relations on both sides.
