Govt. Will Probe Pakistan Security Complaint: MoF

Ministry of Foreign (MoF) has said that the Afghan government hasn’t been officially informed of any security concerns that have prompted Pakistan to close its consular services in Kabul.

Pakistan’s embassy in Kabul in a statement said that it was indefinitely closing its consular office in the Afghan capital due to security reasons, amid mounting tensions between the neighboring countries.

Islamabad has not disclosed any details on the security concerns but on Sunday, Pakistan’s foreign affairs ministry summoned the Afghan chargé d’affaires to convey concerns about the safety of its diplomats in Kabul.

The spokesman of MoF, Geran Hewad told AP that the Afghan officials will investigate the issue.

Afghanistan and Pakistan have an uneasy relationship, with Kabul blaming Islamabad for supporting the Taliban in the country’s protracted war.
