Qatar to open embassy in Kabul

Kabul: The Afghan foreign ministry on Saturday announced that Qatar is going to open an embassy in Kabul.

A ministry statement said that the matter was discussed between Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabani and his Qatari counterpart Khalid Bin Mohammed AlAttiyah on Friday, Khaama Press reported.

The statement, however, does not specify when the embassy would open.

Qatar had talked to Afghan officials about opening an embassy in Kabul two years ago but it was delayed due to unknown reasons.

Reports suggest that Afghanistan and Qatar will also ink some agreements in different sectors in the near future.
