Qatar to open embassy in Kabul
The decision came during a recent visit of President Hamid Karzai to Qatar for discussing the issue of Taliban’s office in the Gulf country, a statement from the palace said.
Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani supported the Afghan-led peace process and assured Karzai they would support efforts at bringing peace and stability to the country.
Qatari entrepreneurs, who are keenly interested in investing in Afghanistan, will send a delegation to assess the business environment, Karzai was quoted as saying in the statement.
Karzai also invited the Qatari ruler to visit Afghanistan at his convenience.
