Both Interior Minister Omer Davudzai and German Ambassador Martin Jäger have discussed the unconfirmed threat information that led to the closure of some parts of the German Embassy in Kabul.

In a meeting Davudzai said that Afghan security forces were well trained to thwart any kind of terror attack. Also in a statement issued by the Interior Ministry media office said, “The government of Afghanistan calls the security threats against the German embassy baseless.”
