During the meeting, the ministry raised the “Afghan government and people’s concern” over the matter so that the officials share it with their high-level authorities, said Hafiz Zia Ahmad, deputy spokesman of the foreign ministry.

The sides also emphasized the need for the prevention of acts that would undermine relations between the two countries, the ministry official said.
