Beijing: China and Pakistan have decided to launch “joint actions” in Afghanistan to stop the war-torn country from becoming a “hotbed for terrorism” and drive out terrorist forces from there, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

The decision was taken during a meeting between Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Pakistan counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi in the southwestern the Chinese city of Chengdu on Saturday.

During the meeting, Wang and Qureshi “decided to launch joint actions on Afghan issue,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a media briefing here.

Also, a press release posted on the website of the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Wang in his talks with Qureshi “emphasised that as Afghanistan’s neighbours, China and Pakistan are directly impacted by the Afghan situation. It is necessary for the two countries to strengthen cooperation and respond to changes”.

This was “one important agenda during Qureshi’s visit to China,” said the press release titled ‘China and Pakistan Decide to Launch Joint Actions on Afghan Issue’.
