Pakistan's Army Chief Gen. Raheel Sharif arrived in Kabul on Wednesday, just a day after the Peshawar attack, to meet with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to discuss combating terrorism in both countries and the region.

According to the Presidential Palace media release, Ghani expressed his condolences to Sharif and the nation of Pakistan in regards to the innocent lives lost in Tuesday's horrific attack on a military-run school in Peshawar.

He said that the attack witnessed in Peshawar was an "attack on Afghanistan, Muslims and humanity," emphasizing that the insurgents were the same who attacked the youth in Yahya Khail district of Paktika province and Lycee Istiqlal High School.

Gen. Sharif, according to the press release, said that Pakistan is trying its best to hunt down those behind the Peshawar attack and serve justice.

Meanwhile, according to Pakistan's The Express Tribune, Gen. Sharif's reason traveling to Kabul was "to deliver a warning to Afghan authorities to take decisive action against sanctuaries of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) or else Pakistan would go for hot pursuit."

Although, both sides during their meeting in Kabul emphasized the need for cooperation in order to counter terrorism and extremism in the region.
