President Mamnoon Hussain told visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Islamabad that the protection of Chinese citizens working in Pakistan was the "top priority" of the government, according to a statement issued by the presidency.
At the time, President Ashraf Ghani and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to the need for a joint fight against terrorism and extremism, to expand both regional cooperation and China's support in the Afghan peace process.
The mechanism will include prevention through effective intelligence and information sharing and other mutually agreed measures, and enable the two sides to maintain timely and effective communications in case of any emergencies including terrorist attacks. The Chinese side will support this mechanism, read the statement issued by the Ministry.
Pakistan, Afghanistan and China have agreed to strengthen mutual cooperation and coordination "in dealing with the common challenges to peace and security", a Pakistani official reiterated.
Wang said that China is willing to play a constructive role within its capacity to help Afghanistan and Pakistan in improving their relations.
The three parties call on the Afghan Taliban to join the reconciliation process at an early date.
"That's the kind of role that the United States would like to encourage and perhaps maybe even cooperate in terms of development projects", the official said on condition of anonymity.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China wants to work together with Pakistan and Afghanistan for maintaining peace and prosperity in the region.
