ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - Pakistan summoned the Afghan Ambassador to its Foreign Office on Thursday to protest against the detention of its Consulate General official at Afghanistan city of Kandahar.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ambassador of Afghanistan was called to the Foreign Office yesterday evening and a demarche was made regarding detention of an official of Pakistan Consulate General at Kandahar by Afghan authorities. He was forcibly taken away and kept in detention.
