After a three-month diplomatic row, Pakistan and Afghanistan have mutually announced to resume the visa services.
A diplomatic mission in Kabul mentioned in twitter post that Pakistani embassy is very happy to announce the resumption of its full consular services from 29th of December.
Due to the harassment of the Pakistani diplomats, Pakistan shut down its visa section on 4th November in Afghanistan.
Soon after the harassment case was reported in Afghanistan, the foreign office called upon the afghan charge d’affairs to express serious concern regarding the security and the safety of the embassy personnel in Kabul and its sub-missions.
Along with the resumption in the visa service, the afghan authorities also announced the reopening of Peshawar consulate general after the closure of 3 months.
The mission was shut down in order to protest removal of the afghan national flag from Afghan market which is built on the disputed piece of land.
On the other hand, as per the latest development, the gas supply has resumed for a day at the CNG stations of Karachi. This has caused long lines of vehicles at the CNG pumps.
