Pakistan to set up embassy in Kabul

K J M Varma in Islamabad

Pakistan on Friday said it would set up its embassy in Kabul soon after the new interim government in Afghanistan takes over on December 22.

Foreign ministry spokesman Aziz Ahmed Khan told reporters in Islamabad that Pakistan has decided to re-appoint its previous ambassador to Kabul, Arif Ayub.

Welcoming the fall of the Taliban regime, he said it would "greatly help" in implementing the new power-sharing agreement reached between various Afghan groups in Bonn.

Pakistan's welcoming the fall of Taliban as well as its decision to re-open its mission follows President Pervez Musharraf's telephone call to Afghanistan's interim government head Hamid Karzai to greet him on his appointment.

Karzai said he appreciated that Musharraf was the first head of state to contact him and recalled the help Pakistan extended in Afghanistan's battle against Soviet occupation in the 1980s.
