Top-level delegation of Pakistan's civil and military leadership, led by Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua, reached Afghanistan earlier today to attend the meeting.

A joint statement after the day-long meeting in the Afghan capital said the two sides promised to keep talking.

"We would take revenge wisely and with a plan", he said.

The meeting comes in the backdrop of a series of deadly attacks rattled Kabul, after which a high-level delegation from Afghanistan comprising the interior minister and spy chief had visited Islamabad this week with a "personal message" from President Ashraf Ghani.

The Spokesperson told that the Foreign Secretary explained that instead of blame game both sides should engage in concrete cooperation.

The trip to Afghanistan, Sullivan said, was an important opportunity for him to reaffirm the US' commitment to strengthening its partnership with the country.

Ghani, according to the palace, besides expressing gratitude to the U.S. for its support to Afghanistan, also stated that the Afghan government would not negotiate with terrorist groups.

The foreign minister added that the Afghan delegation, which visited Islamabad on Wednesday, had productive talks with Pakistan.

The NSC reviewed the security situation in the region and strongly condemned the recent spate of terrorist attacks in Kabul and observed that the government and people of Pakistan shared the shock, grief, and sorrow of their Afghan brethren and stood by their side in complete solidarity. Looking beyond the immediate aftermath of what happened, a glimmer of hope has appeared on the horizon in the form of the Tashkent Conference that's prospectively slated to take place in March to revive the Afghan peace process.
