In February, the U.S. and the Afghan Taliban signed an agreement to put an end to the longest U.S. war fought in Afghanistan since 2001.
The U.S.-Afghan peace envoy and the head of the Pakistani army welcomed the start of a peace process between the Afghan government and the Taliban, while violence has resumed after a brief ceasefire was announced two weeks ago.
Among the main issues discussed were the repatriation of more than two million Afghan refugees who had been living in Pakistan for decades and the management of the 2,500 km long border between the two countries.
