Wang made the remarks on Saturday during a meeting with Adviser to Pakistan's Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, reports Xinhua news agency.

The Pakistan army said the attacks are linked to sanctuaries across the border inside Afghanistan.

Asserting that the US" ties with India and Pakistan were not a "zero-sum game', the White House has said that the Trump administration's priorities and the nature of relationship with the two countries were different.

"Pakistan has consistently emphasized that peace and stability in Afghanistan is in our interest and a stable Afghanistan would help us to promote our shared agenda of economic development and regional connectivity", he added.

"We think that this is important step forward towards the improvement of their bilateral relationship and we also stated many times that maintenance of friendly relationships between two countries is conducive to regional stability and security and global efforts against terrorism, we will continue our efforts in this regard", Geng said.

According to the press release, Pakistan and Afghanistan agreed to establish a crisis management mechanism, which would include prevention through timely and effective intelligence and information sharing and other mutually-agreed measures.

"This will enable the two sides to maintain timely and effective communications for counter-terrorism and other emergencies", it added. The Chinese side will support this mechanism, read the statement issued by the Ministry.

The three parties agreed to establish the China-Afghanistan-Pakistan foreign ministers' dialogue mechanism to cooperate on issues of mutual interest, beginning with economic cooperation.

China has lately got increasingly involved in Afghanistan.

Beijing is investing billions of dollars in Pakistan, China's staunch ally, to establish a trade route to gain access to global markets through the Pakistani port of Gwadar on the Arabian Sea.

But fears over safety arose last month when two Chinese workers were abducted in Quetta, Balochistan, which is at the heart of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project but racked by separatist and religious insurgencies.

The Chinese foreign minister, on behalf of the three countries, also called call on the Taliban to join the Afghan reconciliation process.

A state-run Chinese daily has accused India of being stubborn in its geo-political thinking, and this is clearly reflected in New Delhi's decision to have a dedicated air corridor with Afghanistan by bypassing Pakistan.

"We will conduct shuttle diplomacy to help improve relations between the two countries within our capacity and also to promote the peace process in Afghanistan", Geng said.

Rabbani thanked China for its important role in peace, stability and economic development of Afghanistan.
