New Delhi: The Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has stopped it’s operation in India, effectively from Sunday.
“It is with profound sadness, regret and disappointment that the Embassy of Afghanistan in New Delhi announces this decision to cease it’s operation,” the official statement read.
Aghanistan cited lack of support from host nation and failure to meet expectations in serving ‘Afghanistan’s interests.’
The embassy mentioned that the decision is being taken with deep regret and after careful consideration.
“The lack of timely and sufficient support from visa renewal for diplomats to other critical areas of cooperation led to an understandable frustration among our team and impeded our ability to carry out routine duties effectively,” the statement read.
The development has come after couple of ambassador and other senior diplomats of the Afghan embassy left India for Europe and the United States and gained asylum.
Notably, five Afghan diplomats have left India.
