Islamabad’s Afghan Embassy

The Afghan embassy complex is to be constructed in Islamabad.  An incredibly large structure covering 23,800 square meters, the structure is to be the largest embassy in the world.

The financing ($17 million) for the project is coming from a Chinese company and is indicative of strong and advancing Afghan-Pakistani relations, which were echoed at the ground-breaking ceremony with Nasir Ahmad Andisha, Deputy Foreign Minister of Afghanistan, Sun Weidong (Pakistan’s Chinese Ambassador) and Omar Zakhilwal (Islamabad’s Afghan ambassador).

It is hoped that the building will be complete by 2020.
