Pakistan delegation was led by Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua and has offered a joint investigation into the terrorist attacks.

Deputy Secretary of State John J Sullivan, who recently returned from a visit to strife-torn Afghanistan, said the U.S. also expects Pakistan to contribute to a lasting and enduring peace in the region.

Moreover, Pakistan reminded the world that it has cleansed its border region of terrorists, but that Afghan refugees nevertheless pose serious security risks and should therefore be repatriated. This announcement hasn't deterred the Taliban or Daesh, both of whom are designated as terrorist groups by Russian Federation, from carrying out more attacks, as they nearly seem determined to taunt the U.S. judging by their spree of attacks over the past two weeks.

"Pakistan affirms solidarity with the people and government of Afghanistan in fighting the menace of terrorism", he said in a statement.

The meeting comes in the backdrop of a series of deadly attacks rattled Kabul, after which a high-level delegation from Afghanistan comprising the interior minister and spy chief had visited Islamabad this week with a "personal message" from President Ashraf Ghani.

Afghan and U.S. officials say the Haqqani network, a militant group affiliated with the Taliban and believed to be based in Pakistan, was responsible.

Pakistan has urged Afghanistan to stop the blame game and asked for its co-operation in combating terrorism.

Chaudhry further said that Pakistan does not want "any violence or terrorism" in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Office in Islamabad issued a Joint Press Release on the meeting of High level Afghan and Pakistan delegations in Kabul.

When a van bomb disguised as an ambulance exploded in Kabul a week ago, killing more than 100 people and maiming scores of others, General Votel was in a meeting at the Afghan Defence Ministry, only a few kilometres away.
