PESHAWAR: Spokesman of Afghanistan Foreign Affairs, Sultan Ahmed Bahain Thursday said that the Afghan Government was satisfied with the efforts made by the Pakistani government for the safe recovery of missing ambassador-designate to Pakistan, Abdul Khaliq Farahi.
In a press briefing at the Afghan Consulate Peshawar, Mr Bahain said the four member delegation of Afghanistan met with NWFP Governor Owais Ahmed Ghani and NWFP Chief Minister Ameer Haider Hoti in connection with kidnapping of Afghan diplomat.
He said that both NWFP Governor and Chief Minister had given full assurance to them that there is every hope for early recovery of Mr Farahi. The Afghan delegation had showed full satisfaction over the efforts made by Pakistani authorities for the safe and early recovery of ambassador designate.
Bahain said the Afghan government had received no contact or demand from Taliban or any other group for release of the ambassador. Neither the Afghan government has contacted any group nor did the kidnapers contact us in this regard, he added.
Farahi is our brother and the government is making all its efforts to recover him as soon as possible, he quoted the NWFP Chief Minister as saying and hoped that the missing envoy would soon be recovered.
