The Foreign Ministry of Taliban has announced that a delegation of Islamic Emirate visited the Afghanistan Consulate General in Khorog, the capital of Badakhshan province in Tajikistan.
Abdul Qahar Balkhi, Taliban’s spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry on Saturday in a series of Tweets said that Mohammad Mosa Amiri, head of the ministry’s financial and administrative department headed the delegation.
Besides observing the administrative affairs of the consulate, the delegation assessed the damages caused to the consulate building due to the recent avalanches, Balkhi said.
Taliban claims that the Afghan Consulate building in Khorog province of Tajikistan has sustained certain damages due to the avalanches.
The Taliban officials have not yet shared any video or photos of the group’s delegation to the Afghanistan Consulate in Khorog Tajikistan.
Afghanistan Embassy in Tajikistan has not yet commented about the visit. This visit comes as the Afghan embassy in Tajikistan is not handed over to the Taliban, and still operates in line with the policy of the previous government of Afghanistan.
Tajikistan is the only neighboring country that has not handed over Afghanistan’s embassy and consulates to the Taliban regime. Since the return of the Taliban to power in August 2021, Dushanbe has shut down its embassy in Kabul and has no ties with Afghanistan’s de facto regime.
Furthermore, the Central Asian nation closed its border with Afghanistan following the overthrow of the previous government and has repeatedly called on the Taliban regime to establish an inclusive government, respect human rights, and insure the security of all people of Afghanistan.
The government of Tajikistan has not commented on the Taliban delegation’s visit to Khorog Tajikistan. Further developments in this regard will be shared in a timely manner.
