Khalili’s visit is the latest in a series of high-level contacts between the two governments on the Afghan peace process.
In November, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan travelled to Afghanistan’s capital Kabul to hold talks with President Ashraf Ghani.
During that visit, Khan promised Pakistan would do “everything, whatever is possible” to aid the peace process.
Khalili was the chairman of the Afghan High Peace Council (HPC), a body formed by former Afghan President Karzai to lead negotiations with the Afghan Taliban that was officially dissolved in 2019.
The role of the HPC has now largely been taken by the High Council for National Reconciliation, led by former Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah.
During Tuesday’s meeting, Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi repeated a Pakistani allegation of “spoilers” attempting to derail the Afghan peace process – a thinly veiled dig at regional rival India, who Islamabad accuses of sponsoring armed groups on Pakistani soil.
“The foreign minister reiterated Pakistan’s call on all sides to take measures for reduction in violence leading to ceasefire,” read the Pakistani statement.
“He also cautioned against the role of ‘spoilers’ within and outside Afghanistan, who did not wish to see return of peace in Afghanistan and the region.”
Violence has continued to rage in Afghanistan in recent weeks, despite the continuing peace talks. On Sunday, at least three people were killed in a roadside bombing in Kabul.
