S K Lambah to lead second mission to Kabul

The government's Special Envoy on Afghanistan S K Lambah will lead a second Indian mission to Kabul on Wednesday where he is likely to establish first official contact with Hamid Karzai, leader of the new interim administration and other leaders.

Lambah will be accompanied by Arun Singh, Joint Secretary in the External Affairs Ministry and an administrative team, which will work on making the Indian chancery functional and get it ready for re-opening later in December.

Lambah had led the first Indian mission to Kabul in November when he met former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani, Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah and other Afghan leaders.

Abdullah is slated to visit Delhi later this week.

Lambah's delegation had included eight doctors, para-medical staff and a liaison officer all of whom had stayed back.

While the liaison officer is overseeing the repair and renovation work of the Indian chancery and the ambassador's residence in Kabul, the medical team has started functioning at the Indira Gandhi Hospital in Kabul.

Official sources said the special flight would ferry humanitarian aid for the Afghan people.
