South & Central Asia Acting Assistant Secretary Ambassador Alice G Wells on Monday called on Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa at GHQ in Rawalpindi.

According to a statement of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), regional security environment and matters of mutual interest were discussed.

"Pakistan is committed to peace and stability in the region particularly in Afghanistan through a national approach," General Bajwa said.

"Pakistan also expects other players in the region to play equally positive part," he added.

Ambassador Wells said that US is committed to lasting peace and supports all efforts towards that end.

Both agreed that bilateral convergences should be leveraged to gain positive momentum rather than remaining hostage to perceptions.
