PRAGUE

The Czech Republic will close its embassy in the Afghan capital Kabul on Jan. 1, 2023 as no improvement in the country’s security situation is expected anytime soon, local media reported Wednesday.

Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky has decided to close the Czech embassy in Kabul, said the Czech News Agency (CTK).

The Czech Republic, which opened the embassy in Kabul in 2007, temporarily closed it in August 2021 and had to evacuate its staff due to the rapid advance of Taliban forces to the capital.
