Following the halting of operations of the Afghan embassy in India, now Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, said that the embassy will reopen in a few days.
In an interview with RTA, Stanikzai pledged that the Islamic Emirate consulates are active in Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad and provide consular services to Afghan immigrants.
"Last night, our two consuls from Hyderabad and Mumbai went to Delhi. While in the embassy, they are assessing what is and is not in the offices. Our embassy will open in New Delhi after an evaluation, maybe within two or three days," he added.
Stamkzai said that twenty embassies of neighboring and regional countries are currently operating in Afghanistan.
"We still have diplomatic relations with those we had in the past, a number of 18 and 20 embassies are now active in Afghanistan,” Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai said.
According to some political analysts, the reopening of embassies in the region and the world, is beneficial for the improvement of the situation of the country and the diplomatic relations of the Islamic Emirate with the world.
"As far as foreign embassies open in Afghanistan, this is in the interest of the people of Afghanistan, and if the embassies of Afghanistan are opened in foreign countries, it is also in the interest of the people of Afghanistan,” Salim Paigir, a political analyst, told TOLOnews.
"With the reopening of embassies, close relations will be established between us and the world, and this is very good,” said Moeen Gul Samkanai, a political analyst.
This comes as, less than a week ago, the Afghan embassy in New Delhi announced the complete suspension of its activities, saying that this embassy was closed due to the pressure of the Indian government and the Islamic Emirate.
