In conversation with Geo News, Qureshi shed light on his trip saying: “Today's visit to Kabul remained very advantageous. I understand that the clouds of fear have faded away."

“We have come here for the betterment of the people of both countries and we will have to deal with mutual challenges together," he said. 

The foreign minister also revealed subsequent to his meeting with the Afghan Chief Executive that the talks between the two countries will continue when the Afghan economic commission visits the country in October.

Moreover, he observed that in order to extend the economic ties between the countries, it is essential for a joint economic commission to be formed.
