Badrudin Haqqani, the new Chargé d'affaires of the Islamic Emirate's embassy in the United Arab Emirates, has officially begun his job.
Abdul Qahar Balkhi, the spokesman for the Foreign Ministry said on his X account that the UAE’s acceptance of Badrudin Haqqani is a “key development” in relations between the two countries and the move will further “strengthen” bilateral relations.
The Islamic Emirate’s spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, also said that Haqqani will be providing consulate services to the Afghan nationals there.
Former diplomats and political analysts called the appointment of a new Chargé d'affaires by the Islamic Emirate important for the improvement of relations and solving the challenges of Afghan nationals.
“The introduction of Afghanistan's envoy to the UAE can bring facilities regarding provision of consulate services for the refugees and traders,” said Najeeb Rahman Shamal, a political analyst.
Aziz Maarij, a former diplomat, said that the UAE made the decision to accept the Islamic Emirate’s new Chargé d'affaires as it cannot distance itself from the developments happening in the region.
Earlier, the embassies of Afghanistan in Spain and the Netherlands announced their engagement with the interim Afghan government, however the move sparked reactions by the Afghan diplomats abroad.
