The high level military gathering was attended by regional military chiefs who vowed cooperation in the fight against terrorism and narcotics trade, according to NATO's Resolute Support mission in Kabul.

Afghan Defence Ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri said the conference meant to find ways to jointly deal with both security challenges.

General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chief Of Army Staff (COAS) has reached in Kabul, Afghanistan to attend Chief of Defence (CHOD) Conference, said Pakistan Army's media wing on Tuesday.

This was the army chief's second visit to Kabul in four months. The increase came at the request of General John Nicholson, the top US commander in Afghanistan and the leader of NATO's Resolute Support Mission. He said collaborative approach and persistence is the answer to all challenges, for which Pakistan is ready to play its part. Afghanistan claimed that terrorist attacks were planned on the Pakistani soil by the Haqqani network.

The insurgent letter also cited recent United Nations surveys to note record levels of opium-poppy production in Afghanistan, saying it is fueling insecurity, though USA officials estimate 65 percent of Taliban funding comes from the illegal narcotics trade.

Afghan Defence Ministry spokesman Waziri said his government hopes a joint regional security strategy through conferences like the one Kabul hosted Tuesday would also help counter IS terrorists and address complaints by Iran and Russian Federation that terrorism in Afghanistan threatens their sovereignty and regional security interests.

"I believe that at last Pakistan will bow to global pressure and will join the fight against terrorism", Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman Daulat Waziri said on February 13.

Some reports earlier said North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commanderGen.

In their annual report, six United States intelligence agencies stated that Pakistan has pursued its extended nuclear arsenal, continued to support the Taliban, Haqqani network and other terrorist organizations and has limited its cooperation with Washington in the fight against terrorism by forging ties with China - factors the U.S. believes to be threatening to their interests in Afghanistan.

A day before, the Army Chief met with Mr Ishan Mustafa Yurdakul, newly appointed Turkish Ambassador to Pakistan.

Participating countries - especially Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan - recently voiced their concern over the growing number of insurgents in the north of Afghanistan. But Trump has said, "We don't want talks with the Taliban".
