Berlin to discuss with Taliban return of German diplomats to Afghanistan : Reports

Berlin, Nov 6 (UNI/Sputnik) Special envoy of the German cabinet to Afghanistan, Markus Potzel, will travel to Kabul in the coming weeks to discuss with the Taliban (terrorist group, banned in Russia) the resumption of the work of German diplomats in the country, Welt am Sonntag reported on Saturday, citing sources.
The diplomats might resume work activities in the format of day trips, according to the newspaper.
Germany intends to take such a step in order to provide access to humanitarian aid for the Afghan population, the newspaper said. Another issue on the agenda could be the recognition of passports issued after the Taliban came to power with the aim to make travel easier for Afghans who had collaborated with the Bundeswehr or worked for German organizations, Welt noted.
