Matters relating to regional security situation came under discussion during the meeting.

Franz-Michael Mellbin during the meeting, appreciated successes of Operation Zarb-e-Azb and efforts of Pakistan for regional stability.

Zarb-e-Azb does seem to have had a positive impact on militant attacks, which have been down overall.
