ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and Afghanistan on Saturday pledged to work together for “peace, stability and prosperity” as the two wary neighbours, wracked by terrorism, attempt to bring the Taliban to the negotiating table.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said Pakistan’s foremost priority was building a “peaceful neighbourhood” and reaffirmed that a peaceful, stable, united and prosperous Afghanistan is in Pakistan’s vital national interest.

“I have vision of a strong, comprehensive and enduring partnership between Pakistan and Afghanistan, contributing to the security and prosperity of our two nations, and reinforcing efforts for peace and development in the region. I am gratified that President (Ashraf) Ghani has a similar vision,” Sharif said.
