Kabul: Pakistan Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa arrived in Kabul on Tuesday, where he is expected to attend the Chief of Defence Conference, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

US Army General John Nicholson, the commander of the Resolute Support mission, and Afghan Army chief Gen Sher Mohammad Karimi will also attend the conference, reports Dawn news.

The conference comes less than a month after a series of deadly attacks rattled Kabul, following which a high-level delegation from Afghanistan had visited Islamabad.

The delegation held talks with the Pakistani leadership on security cooperation amid the highly volatile security situation in their country.

Afghan officials had said that the delegation handed over to Islamabad “undeniable” evidence which claimed that the spate of deadly attacks in Afghanistan were allegedly planned in Pakistan.
