Amir Khan Muttaqi, the acting foreign minister, called for interaction with the current Afghan government, in a meeting with Robert Chatterton Dickson, the ad interim chargé d'affaires of the UK mission in Afghanistan.
According to Hafiz Zia Ahmad Takal, the deputy spokeswoman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dickson stressed the importance of maintaining Afghanistan's stability and security and preventing drug trafficking.
Dickson and Muttaqi spoke about commercial issues, education, consular services, and fostering closer ties between Kabul and London during their discussion, the deputy spokesman said.
"The foreign minister discussed the issues facing Afghans residing in Britain and expressed his hope that consular services will begin in London so that Afghans can get their rights,” Takal told TOLOnews.
In the meantime, the acting minister of higher education, Neda Mohammad Nadim, urged collaboration in the area of education in Afghanistan during a separate meeting with Chatterton Dickson.
"Britain's role in Afghanistan is limited, but it can also improve coordination with other western countries in monitoring the human rights situation in Afghanistan and also can make a significant contribution in providing humanitarian aid," said Nematullah Bizhanpor, an expert in international relations.
"The interaction of countries with the Taliban is positive if it is intended to alter the Taliban's policies, but if it means approving the Taliban's policies, this interaction means taking part in the violation of the rights of the Afghan people," said Sayed Javad Sajadi, a university lecturer.
Last month, Robert Chatterton Dickson was appointed to serve as the British Embassy's chargé d'affaires in Afghanistan.
The British Embassy in Afghanistan now operates from Doha, the capital of Qatar.
