Afghanistan to suspend diplomatic missions in 3 countries
font size    

Afghanistan has decided to suspend its diplomatic missions in one African and two Asian states, spokesman of the country's foreign ministry Sultan Ahmad Baheen said Monday.

"For the time being the foreign ministry would suspend its embassies in Sudan, Kyrgyzstan and Syria," Baheen told Xinhua.

The decision would come into effect from beginning 2007, he stressed.

Counting financial problems for taking such step, he added that the aim of the decision was to save money.

"In order to prevent unnecessary expenditure and support some other diplomatic missions, the foreign ministry has taken this step," the spokesman further said.

He also hinted at suspending more Afghan diplomatic missions by saying more embassies could be suspended in the future, but he did not give more details.
