The SAPM said that prosperity in both countries would come from mutual relations and trade.
“The prime minister’s visit to Kabul encouraged mutual understanding,” Dr Moeed said.
Pakistan, he said, was focusing on economic security where it could act as a natural hub for global economic interests.
“Pakistan’s economic security is linked to stability in Afghanistan as ties with Central Asian countries will benefit the two countries,” Dr Moeed Yousuf added.
India was trying to destabilise Pakistan where the latter was making continuous efforts for peace in Afghanistan, Dr Yusuf said.
The Afghan ambassador held out assurance to Dr Yusuf that Afghan soil would not be allowed to be used against Pakistan.
