Sources confirmed that a delegation headed by Qalandar Ebad, Acting Public Health Minister, will travel to London.

Sources told Hasht-e Subh on Sunday that the delegation would soon leave Kabul for London after agreeing on how the international community would assist Afghanistan at the Geneva conference. But officials have not commented.

The visit comes two days after Hugo Shorter, the British Chargé d’Affaires in Doha, led a British delegation to Kabul.

He tweeted that during his visit, he spoke with Acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi and Abdul Haq Wasiq, the director general of intelligence.

The delegation’s visit to London comes after British journalist Andrew North and British filmmaker Andrew McConnell were abducted in Kabul.

Andrew McConnell tweeted that he had been released from custody after spending 6 days inside a prison in Kabul.

He also noted that his Afghan colleagues had also been released.

Peter Jouvenal, a journalist and owner of Gandmak Restaurant, and his colleagues are reportedly still in custody.

The delegation had previously discussed the situation in Afghanistan with the international community in Oslo and Geneva.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry has announced that Acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi has also headed a high-level delegation to Qatar.

According to the Foreign Ministry newsletter, Muttaqi is scheduled to meet with diplomatic missions resumed their operations in Qatar, as well as the Union of Religious Scholars.
