A deputy prime minister in the Taliban’s interim government in Afghanistan called on Japan’s ambassador to reopen the country’s embassy in Kabul when the two met in the capital of the war-torn nation Wednesday.

The request was made when Abdul Ghani Baradar met Ambassador Takashi Okada, the Taliban said. Japan temporarily closed its embassy in Kabul on Aug. 15, the day the Taliban took effective control of the country as the United States prepared to withdraw its forces.
