Afghanistan’s decision to recall ambassador unfortunate and regrettable: FO

KABUL: Following the decision of the Government of Afghanistan to recall its Ambassador and senior diplomats from Pakistan, the Foreign Office said that the move is “unfortunate and regrettable,” according to a statement issued Sunday.

“​​The reported abduction and assault of the ambassador’s daughter in Islamabad is being investigated and followed up at the highest level on the instructions of the Prime Minister. The security of the Ambassador, his family, and personnel of the Embassy and Consulates of Afghanistan in Pakistan has been further beefed up,” the statement read.

It added that the foreign secretary met the ambassador of Afghanistan today, highlighted all the steps taken by the government in this context, and re-assured him of full cooperation.

“We hope that the Government of Afghanistan would reconsider its decision,” the statement said.

The statement came after Afghanistan on Sunday said it was recalling its ambassador to Islamabad and all senior diplomats over “security threats” after the top envoy’s daughter was briefly “kidnapped” in the Pakistani capital this week.
