Pakistan hosts spymasters of China, Russia, Iran and central Asian states in Islamabad

Pakistan on Saturday hosted a meeting of spymasters of some countries in the region on the situation in Afghanis­tan, a security source said.

There was no official statement on the meeting, but an intelligence source privately confirmed that the session had taken place.

The meeting was attended by the intelligence heads from China, Russia, Iran, Tajikistan Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

“The hosting of the meeting by Pakistan reflects our sincerity for peace in the region and Afghanis­tan,” the source said.

The meeting comes days after he visited Afghanistan to hold key meetings.

It was the latest effort by Pakistan, which had over the past few days hosted meetings of the foreign ministers of the six neighbouring countries of Afghanistan and that of their special envoys, to develop a common regional strategy on dealing with challenges emanating from the events unfolding in the war-ravaged country since the fall of Ghani regime.
