(Last Updated On: December 1, 2015)


The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah considered Paris Climate Change Conference a historic summit, saying President Ghani is expected to meet Pakistani Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif on the sidelines of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris to discuss the outstanding bilateral issues and measures to resolve them.

It was not unclear when and where the two leaders would meet, but there were indications the talks may happen in Paris.

The 21st United Nations Conference of the Parties, or COP21, which begin in Paris on November 30, aims to unite around 150 nations for a single agreement on tackling climate change.

The idea is to cap the rate of global warming at 2 degrees Celsius – compared to the current 2.5 to 3.76 degrees Celsius. This will be done by, among other things, reducing dependence on fossil fuels and shifting towards cleaner energies such as wind or solar power.

Pakistani Awami National Party leader Asfandyar Wali, who recently visited Afghanistan came to Kabul to strengthen Pak-Afghan relations.

Asfandyar Wali said that Afghan government is now open for talks and that leadership of both the countries should work for resolving the outstanding issues.

Relations between the two neighbours hit the lowest ebb after Kabul blamed Islamabad for an upsurge in Taliban violence that followed a bitter leadership row in the orthodox militia triggered by the confirmation of the death of its longtime leader Mullah Omar in July this year.
