RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: A US congressional delegation led by ranking member Senate Armed Services committee Senator Jack Reed called on the Chief of Army Staff General (COAS) Raheel Sharif at the army’s general headquarters in Rawalpindi on Wednesday.

“The senator appreciated Pakistan’s role in counter terrorism efforts,” the ISPR said.

On Tuesday, the COAS accompanied by a high-level military delegation including the Director General Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt General Rizwan Akhtar visited Kabul.

During his day-long visit, the army chief held important meetings with the Afghan President Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai and the Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah in Kabul.
