Kabul, 04 Sept. 2021 (Daily Dawn)
Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Director General Lt Gen Faiz Hameed said on Saturday that “everything will be okay” in Afghanistan as he arrived in Kabul on what sources said was day-long trip related to the security of the region.
In a video posted on Twitter by Channel 4 News, the ISI chief can be seen alongside Pakistan’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Mansoor Ahmad Khan at a hotel in Kabul.
“What do you hope is going to happen now in Afghanistan,” a reporter asked Gen Faiz. “We are working for peace and stability in Afghanistan,” said a member of Hameed’s entourage.
“Don’t worry, everything will be okay,” the ISI chief told the reporter with a smile.
According to sources, Gen Faiz will hold a meeting with the Taliban during his visit and converse about the issue of pending requests from countries and international organisations for the repatriation of their people through Pakistan.
He is also expected to discuss with Afghan leaders border management in connection to the movement of Afghans who cross over on a daily basis as routine.
