US National Security Adviser Herbert McMaster on Monday arrived here in Pakistan's capital city for talks on security situation in Afghanistan and bilateral matters.
McMaster discussed with Pakistan's Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz bilateral relations between the two countries and security situation in the South Asian region, particularly in Afghanistan, Radio Pakistan reported.
McMaster is the first senior US official of the Trump's administration to visit Pakistan.
The visit came after his talks with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah in Kabul.
McMaster will later in the day meet Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to discuss the ongoing tension between Pakistan and its neighbours -- India and Afghanistan -- and progress on the Pakistan-Afghan border system.
He is also likely to call on Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Bajwa to share views on the regional security, focusing on peace in Afghanistan, Daily Times reported.
McMaster's visit comes three days after a key meeting of 11 regional countries in Moscow opposed military solution and called for a peaceful solution to the Afghan problem.
