Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif  said he supported Afghan efforts to seek peace with the Taliban and would help negotiators meet a former senior insurgent commander.

Visiting Kabul for talks with President Hamid Karzai, Sharif repeated that his government had released former commander Mullah Baradar, who is seen by Afghanistan as important to bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table.

The one-day visit was Sharif's first to Afghanistan since he took office in May and came as Karzai is locked in a public dispute with Washington over a security deal covering the role of US soldiers who remain in the country after next year.
