Pakistan and Afghanistan have agreed that they would not allow terrorists to use their soil for anti-state activities against each other.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqani Abbasi on Friday arrived in Kabul on a one-day visit to hold talks with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on matters of mutual interest.

The two leaders agreed that Afghanistan Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity (APAPPS) provided a useful framework for broad based and structured engagement on all issues of mutual interest and chose to operationalize the five working groups under APAPPS.

Earlier in the day, Pakistani ambassador in Kabul said Pakistan's Prime Abbasi's upcoming visit would help open new chapter of good will and friendly relations with Afghanistan.

The Prime Minister will also meet senior Afghan political leaders.

"The two leaders reiterated that terrorism was a common enemy and threat", the statement said.

According to Afghan presidential spokesman Shah Hussain Murtazawi that bracing peace talks with the Taliban, the return of Afghan refugees who are now in Pakistan, and the exchange of prisoners were high on the agenda of the meeting between Ghani and Abbasi, reported (RFE/RL).

PM Abbasi was welcomed by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and the two inspected an honor guard at the Presidential Palace in Kabul before heading in for meetings.

Abbasi recently joined the Afghan president in Herat to inaugurate the TAPI gas pipeline project.

To promote regional economic integration, the two countries are participating in key trans-regional initiatives - Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline and Central Asia-South Asia Electricity Transmission and Trade Project (CASA-1000).

The Prime Minister's visit is taking place in the backdrop of Pakistan's support to President Ghani's offer of peace talks with the Taliban for lasting peace and stability in Afghanistan as well as strengthening bilateral engagement.

Both the leaders agreed that peace, prosperity and stability of the two countries are interlinked.

The Prime Minister also met Chief Executive Dr. Abdullah Abdullah.
