Maj. Gen. Dawlat Waziri, spokesman for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said that the army chiefs from Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan were in Kabul to attend in conference .
Those attending the gathering on Tuesday in the Afghan capital include Pakistan’s army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa and NATO representatives.
This comes as both Afghan and US officials are ratcheting up pressure on Pakistan to close Taliban sanctuaries on its soil, while Islamabad denies charges that it harbors militants.
The army chiefs will also look at the region’s narcotics trade as Afghanistan hits record levels of poppy production.
The meeting is expected to be continued on Wednesday.
