Four days have passed since a delegation left for Qatar to discuss the contract of Afghanistan’s airports, but still no information is available.
Despite this, officials expressed hopes to access a final agreement over the airport management.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Monday that the Islamic Emirate delegation led by Amir Khan Muttaqi, acting foreign minister, met with Qatari deputy prime minister and the foreign minister, Sheikh Mohammad Bin Abdurrahman Al-Thani, and discussed political and economic issues and the Afghan airport contract.
“In the continuation of the talks, we hope to ... find a political resolution,” said Bilal Karimi.
Meanwhile, experts believe that maintaining security for airports will possibly be the controversial point between the sides.
“Security and technical issues can be basic issues, because the security and technical affairs require professional and trained forces, the border forces of the Islamic Emirate are not qualified to do this and they (other side) cannot surrender all security affairs to the Islamic Emirate,” said Mohammad Warimach, former deputy minister of transport.
