Diplomats of the Islamic Emirate restarted official activities in Afghanistan's consulate in Istanbul on Monday, a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
The deputy spokesman of the Foreign Ministry said that efforts are underway to provide consular services as well as diplomatic services.
“The Foreign Ministry clarifies that on Monday, the diplomats of the foreign ministry in Istanbul of Turkey resumed their work officially,” said Zia Ahmad Takal, deputy spokesman for the Foreign Ministry.
“They want to bring changes just to strengthen the government of the Islamic Emirate,” said Wali Frozan, a political analyst.
The former diplomats believe that transferring embassies to the caretaker government of Afghanistan will be effective in improving the world’s relations with Afghanistan.
“Transferring the embassies or consulates of Iran and Turkey ... means the strengthening of relations and it also means the unannounced recognition of the Islamic Emirate,” said Aziz Maarij, a former diplomat.
“Another reason that these missions have been handed over (to the Islamic Emirate) is the secret relations of the diplomats with the Islamic Emirate during the time of the former government,” said Fahim Kohdamani, a former diplomat.
On Monday, Fazal Mohammad Haqqani, a former diplomat of the Islamic Emirate, took responsibility of the Afghanistan embassy in Tehran.
