Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Amir Khan Muttaqi said in a meeting with the British Chargé d’Affaires for Afghanistan that the country is progressing in various fields, has good relations with neighboring countries and beyond, and has kept the doors for engagement open.
According to a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Muttaqi said that most of the points in the UN special coordinator’s report on Afghanistan were positive, but added that the suggestion to appoint a new special representative for Afghanistan is not appropriate.
He also emphasized the need for the expansion of bilateral relations with Britain, especially in the trade sector, and mentioned the position of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding consular services in the UK.
Based on the statement, Robert Dickson, Chargé d’Affaires of the British Embassy for Afghanistan, considered the existing conditions as an opportunity for advancing political and economic issues along with humanitarian aid and said that his country wants a peaceful and stable Afghanistan.
Dickson considered the UN special coordinator’s report on Afghanistan to be balanced.
