Tehran has agreed to accept new Afghan diplomats to Afghanistan’s embassy in the city and has accredited three diplomats sent by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan to the country, BBC Pashto reported.
Sources on the condition of anonymity told BBC, that the new diplomats included the third secretary of the embassy and the other two are normal employees of the embassy.
Afghanistan’s embassy has not been closed yet despite the transformation of government in the country and is led by the previous envoy.
The spokesperson of Iran’s Foreign Ministry Saeed Khatibzada said the exchange of diplomats between Afghanistan and Iran is compatible with international conventions and has nothing to do with recognition.
Earlier, Russia, China, Pakistan, Turkey, and Turkmenistan had accredited Taliban-dispatched diplomats but no country in the world has recognized the new Afghan government yet.
In the meantime, the US is the only country where Afghanistan’s embassy and consulates topped operations shut down whereas in another country the embassies have been crippled suffering from a lack of budgets.
