Official Statement Confirms Closure: Afghanistan Ends Diplomatic Mission in New Delhi

Afghanistan Embassy News: In a significant diplomatic move, Afghanistan has officially announced the permanent closure of its embassy situated in Delhi. The decision, effective from November 23, 2023, comes as a response to the persistent challenges faced by the Government of Afghanistan in its dealings with India. The Afghan Embassy conveyed that this step is taken in the hope of a more favorable approach from the Government of India for the resumption of normal embassy operations, emphasizing that the decision is not indicative of internal conflict.

In a statement released to a News Agency, the Afghan Embassy expressed gratitude to the understanding and support received from the Afghan citizens in India. The embassy highlighted its efforts to serve the Afghan people despite resource constraints and the absence of a recognized government in Kabul. Regrettably, the Afghan community in India has witnessed a significant decline in the last 2 years and 3 months, with students and businessmen leaving the country.

Decline in Afghan Presence

The Afghan Embassy disclosed that the number of Afghans in India has decreased by half since August 2021, with limited new visas issued during this period. The decline is attributed to challenges faced by the Afghan community, compounded by the absence of a legitimate government in Kabul. It is noteworthy that the Indian authorities, having permitted the operation of the Afghan Embassy in New Delhi with staff appointed by the ousted Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's government, have not recognized the Taliban government that assumed power in Afghanistan in August 2021.

India had evacuated its employees from Afghanistan two years ago, resulting in the absence of Indian diplomats in the country. According to the United Nations Refugee Agency, approximately one-third of the 40,000 registered refugees in India are Afghans. However, this figure does not encompass unregistered Afghan refugees residing in the country. The diplomatic strain reflects the complex geopolitical dynamics following the Taliban's takeover in Afghanistan.
