Taliban welcomes Jakarta’s move to consider reopening Kabul embassy

On Tuesday, an Indonesian foreign ministry official said Jakarta may soon reopen its embassy in Kabul and initiate “constructive engagement” with the IEA.

Hamdullah Wasiq, the IEA’s deputy spokesman on Wednesday said: “We welcome the move by the Indonesian government, which will further strengthen the positive relations between the two countries.”

The Indonesian mission in Afghanistan has been run by its embassy in Pakistan since the chaotic withdrawal of the US military and the collapse of the former government, the Jakarta Globe reported.

“Our goal is to conduct constructive engagement, primarily in the context of humanitarian assistance, including assistance for women, academic scholarship, et cetera,” said Abdul Kadir Jailani, the ministry’s director-general for Asia, the Pacific, and Africa affairs.
