Afghan President Hamid Karzai will visit Pakistan in February in an effort to bridge the growing gap between the two countries.
He said of late differences between the two countries had increased and it was necessary to find out ways to close the chasm.
"Our relations have recently seen a lack of confidence," the Dawn quoted Karzai as saying in his opening remarks at the joint news conference with visiting Pakistani Premier Shaukat Aziz.
Relations between the two neighbours have hit a low point, he said adding the two sides would try to bridge the growing gap in coming months.
Karzai also opposed Pakistan's move of mining and fencing its border with Afghanistan, saying it would "divide the two nations" and "will not prevent terrorism".
