PILDAT, in association with the Standing Committee on Defence and Parliamentary Friendship Groups on Afghanistan in the Parliament of Pakistan, facilitated the 12th round of Pakistan-Afghanistan Parliamentarians’ Dialogue in Islamabad, Pakistan on December 30-31, 2014. The 12th round of Dialogue was a continuation to discuss a number of issues vis-à-vis Pakistan-Afghanistan relations, especially after the formation of new Government in Kabul in 2014. A Delegation of 20 Afghanistan Parliamentarians, belonging to the Meshrano Jirga (Upper House) and the Wolesi Jirga (Lower House) of Afghanistan, had a detailed discussion with Pakistan Parliamentarians on the contentious issues impacting the relations of the two countries. This report presents an overview of the 12th round of the Dialogue. PILDAT conceptualized and initiated the project of building and deepening Parliamentary ties and relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan since 2008. Six joint Workshops of Pakistani and Afghanistan Parliamentarians were held by PILDAT in 2008, 2009 and mid 2011.
