HL Deb 20 December 2001 vol 630 c81WA
Lord Acton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there have been any recent changes to the British diplomatic representation in Kabul. [HL2100]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

Following discussions with the incoming interim administration, we expect to renew diplomatic relations with Afghanistan on 22 December and to redesignate the Office of the British Representative in Kabul as an embassy, headed by a chargé d'affaires. We last had permanent diplomatic representation in Kabul in 1989. We did not have normal government to government dealings with the Taliban regime.
