Pak NSA to soon visit Afghanistan

A top aide to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will travel to Afghanistanon Sunday to bridge differences over the Taliban’s political office and to prepare grounds for President Hamid Karzai’s visit toIslamabad, officials said Friday. The trip by Sartaj Aziz, Advisor to the Prime Minister on National Security and Foreign Affairs, comes amidst fresh allegations by top officials in Kabul that Pakistani agencies are abetting the Taliban insurgency. 

‘He (Aziz) will discuss various bilateral issues during his meetings with President Karzai and senior officials,’ a Foreign Office official said.  The issue of reopening the Afghan Taliban’s office at Doha, which has been temporarily closed down, will figure in the talks, officials said.  Karzai was one of the first leaders to call Sharif after he won theelection in May, when it was hoped that relations would improve under the new government in Pakistan, but the
ties plummeted due to a controversy.
