Earlier, Khatibzadeh said  out of Iran's five missions in Afghanistan, namely in Kabul, Mazar-i-Sharif, Jalalabad, Herat, and Kandahar, the staff of three representative offices, including Mazar-i-Sharif, Jalalabad, and Kandahar are now working from Kabul, adding that for certain reasons, the closure of these three offices was not made public but currently only three guards and a few local employees are present in these three offices.

Khatibzadeh went on to note that in Kabul, the number of staff has been drastically reduced to a size which would allow no disruption in routine tasks.
