According to a statement by the NSA office, the two sides discussed the regional security situation and the prevailing situation in Afghanistan. Janjua said that Pakistan wants peace in Afghanistan but the same is under stress due to the involvement of India which wants to create a "two front situation" for Pakistan.
"India is self-seeking a two front situation which does not augur well for the region. All major powers of the world need to play their role in keeping the region stable and balanced," he said.
He meant to say that Pakistan was being stretched to fight terrorists on the western front with Afghanistan and face Indian army on the eastern border with India.Janjua also said Pakistan wanted peace in Afghanistan and urged for a political settlement of the Afghan issue.
"To end miseries of Afghanistan and its people, warring sides should seek a political solution to the conflict as the perpetual war of last 16 years has given us nothing but human miseries and sufferings," Janjua added.
The NSA added that for "regional peace and stability, it is imperative for both the countries to engage with each and resolve their disputes".
He said Pakistan and India should resolve their disputes for the sake of better future.
