India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 24 Nov 2023, 09:36 am

The Afghanistan government on Friday said it is permanently closing its embassy in New Delhi due to 'persistent challenges from the Indian government'.

"The Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan announces permanent closure in New Delhi," the Afghanistani Embassy in India posted on X.

"Effective from 23 Nov 23,owing to persistent challenges from the Indian government.The decision follows the embassy’s earlier cessation of operations on 30 Sep 23,a move made in the hope that the Indian government stance will favourably change to let the mission operate normally," reads the X post.

Afghanistan came under Taliban rule in 2021.

Taliban started taking control over the country after foreign forces started to leave.

The Taliban forces took control of Kabul on Aug 15, 2021.
