ISLAMABAD: Pakistan ambassador to Afghanistan Mansoor Ahmed Khan has reached Islamabad after Kabul called back its ambassador and senior diplomats, citing security concerns, reports local media.

Sources told a top television channel that the Pakistani diplomat in Kabul reached the capital via PIA flight PK 250.

He was given a demarche by the Afghan foreign ministry in response to the alleged kidnapping of the ambassador’s daughter in Islamabad.

There’s no statement from the Foreign Office on why ambassador Khan has returned to the country.

On Sunday, Afghanistan recalled its ambassador for “consultations” after the reported kidnap.
