Reporter: Firdous Rasouli
Qatar is scheduled to be sent its ambassador to Afghanistan for the first time. Qatar’s Decree No. 22 states that he (Al-Said Mubarak al-Qa’irin Al-Hajari) will be appointed as the Ambassador Extraordinary for Afghanistan. The Qatari Amir’s office has stated that without Afghanistan, Ambassador was appointed to Morocco and China.
According to BBC, a government official who did not want to mention his name told the BBC that the Afghan government is trying to attract more cooperation in the Afghan peace process. And the opening of Qatar’s embassy in Kabul and the launch of Qatar Airways flights to Afghanistan are also part of it.
Qatar is the country where the Taliban is officially in office and Afghan peace talks are held here.
But it is not clear that the opening of Qatar’s embassy in Kabul and the start of Qatar Airlines flights will have an impact on Afghanistan’s relations with countries like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Because Afghanistan is friendly with the two countries opposed to Qatar.
Meanwhile, peace talks between the Taliban and the US Special Representative on Afghan Peace are continuing, and the sixth round of peace talks is set to begin soon in Qatar.
