Afghanistan’s consulate in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), has been handed over to the Taliban government.

The Taliban government’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) introduced Abdul Rahman Feda as the General Consul of Afghanistan in the UAE.

According to a letter issued by the MoFA, the official term of former General Consul Mansour Ahmad Azizi had ended. A second letter said the former chief of protocol of MoFA, Abdul Rahman Feda, had been appointed as the new General Consul.

“The diplomatic device of the Islamic Emirate is active all around the world,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Taliban government. Political analysts said that the appointment of the new consulate is aimed at solving the practical problems of the people.

“The acceptance of the Islamic Emirate’s diplomats, instead of the former diplomats, by the neighboring countries, is more about the economic needs of the neighboring countries and political goals, as is the case with Iran and Pakistan,” said Barna Salehi, a political analyst.

The Afghan Business Council said that nearly 80 percent of Afghan traders abroad are living in the UAE and that they have investments in more than 50 countries. “This is a good step, that the new consuls come to Afghanistan’s consulates in Dubai because we have a lot of problems. There are 300,000 Afghans living here. The majority of our traders who live in the UAE are based in Dubai. They have business from here going all over the world including Afghanistan,” said Haji Obaidullah Sader Khail, head of the Afghan Business Council.

It is to be noted that previously, diplomats of the Taliban government began their official work in Afghanistan’s embassy in Iran and consulate in Istanbul.
