KABUL (Pajhwok): A Taliban-appointed diplomat is all set to begin work as charge d’affaires at the Afghan embassy in Moscow, a Russian media outlet reported on Tuesday.
Jamal Garwal would take over as Afghanistan’s charge d’affaires in Moscow within days, TASS news agency said, citing an Afghan source.
He will be heading the embassy. Earlier, the Taliban sacked Ambassador Said Tayeb Jawad, who had been appointed by the previous administration.
The first diplomat the Taliban delegated to Moscow has already received accreditation from the Russian Foreign Ministry.
