Abdullah Abdullah, former Chairman of Afghanistan’s High Council for National Reconciliation, has returned to Kabul after a 43-day personal visit to India, the media reported.

Upon arriving at the Kabul airport on Saturday, Abdullah told reporters that he travelled to India to visit his family, TOLO News reported.

This was Abdullah’s first trip abroad after the Taliban took over Afghanistan in August last year.

When he left for India on May 4, the former official had tweeted: “As I leave the country for a few days to be with family during Eid-ul Fitr.

“I want to offer prayers for the souls of all martyrs who fell victim to terror, while I wish my compatriots Eid mubarak as we end this Holy season. Our country, men & women, need to come together.”

During his visit, the former Chairman met with officials from the US and France, Khaama News reported.

Despite the Taliban takeover, former President Hamid Karzai and Abdullah have remained in Kabul.
