Australia has decided to close its embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. The decision to close the embassy comes after the international armies have been returning to their home countries. Australia said it is unsure of the security in Afghanistan and announced its decision.
In the press release of the Australian government, it said that the diplomats will be visiting Afghanistan temporarily. The government in Kabul believes that Australia’s decision to leave will be only temporary.
Australia hasn’t disclosed the location of the official staying to monitor the relationship between the two countries. Australia further says that it is committed to a diplomatic relationship and will continue to support Afghanistan development.
The Australian government has reduced the Australian armies deployed in Australia from 1500 to around 80 in the last two years.
