He will also meet senior Afghan political leaders. "They agreed that there was no military solution to the ongoing Afghan conflict and that the political solution was the best way forward", said the statement.
The statement said Ghani and Abbasi held a one on one meeting followed by delegation level talks at the Presidential Palace.
In his remarks, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi welcomed the Afghan government's peace offer to the Taliban.
They also discussed Pakistan's connection to the Central Asia, energy transition, Quetta-Kandahar-Herat and Peshawar-Jalalabad railroad projects and construction of Peshawar-Jalalabad highway.
"The Prime Minister's visit to Afghanistan is aimed at strengthening the positive momentum in bilateral relations and help augment joint endeavours in the pursuit of durable peace, stability and economic prosperity in the two countries, and the region", it said.

In the latest military actions, Pakistan told the Afghan about them and stressed that these operations were on Pakistani side of the border, it said. Islamabad rejected the reports and advised Kabul to "refrain from blame game".
During his meeting with Ghani, the Afghan president invited PM Abbasi to "initiate a state-to-state comprehensive dialogue".
