Afghanistan has currently closed its embassy in India. According to sources, the matter of closure of Afghan Embassy in India is being investigated. This development comes amid Ambassador Farid Mamundze being out of India for several months. It is learned that he is currently in London. He was appointed by the previous Ashraf Ghani government. For information, let us tell you that this matter is related to the new Taliban government of Afghanistan. India does not recognize the Taliban government and closed its embassy in Kabul after the Taliban took control in 2021, but New Delhi allowed it to issue visas to ambassadors and mission staff appointed by the government of former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. . In this case, officials say that the letter which has allegedly been sent by the Afghan Embassy is being investigated.
India has been informed
According to news agency PTI, the Afghan embassy has reportedly informed the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) about its decision to cease operations in the next few days. India has been insisting that Afghan soil will not be used for any purpose. Should not be used for terrorist activities against the country. Apart from this, India has not recognized the Taliban rule in Afghanistan.
The Taliban regime has taken control of at least 14 missions abroad where it has deployed its own nominees, but Delhi was not included.
The Ministry of External Affairs, aware of the internal strife that broke out in the embassy in late April, has not taken any side. Sources said it has conveyed to both sides that this is an internal matter which they will have to resolve themselves. In June this year, the official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs had said in response to questions, “From our point of view this is an internal matter of the Afghan Embassy and we hope that they will resolve it internally.”
