Afghanistan withdraws ambassador, diplomats from Islamabad


Afghanistan has withdrawn its ambassador and diplomats from Pakistan’s capital following the kidnapping of the ambassador’s daughter, the Afghan overseas ministry stated on Sunday.

“The Afghan government recalled the ambassador and senior diplomats to Kabul until complete elimination of the security threats including the arrest and punishment of the perpetrators,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated in an announcement.

A Pakistani overseas workplace spokesperson didn’t instantly reply to a Reuters request for remark. The daughter of Afghanistan’s ambassador to Pakistan was briefly kidnapped by unknown assailants who left her with accidents and twine marks and Pakistan authorities have stated they’re investigating.
