Afghan Diplomats Defect as Western Withdrawal Nears

“A total of 105 Afghani diplomats were meant to report for duty at the Foreign Ministry in Kabul on Saturday.

The others have apparently remained in the countries where they had been posted, among them several employees of the Afghan Embassy in Berlin.”
