Two Americans were slightly injured in an attack on a US consulate vehicle in Afghanistan`s western city of Herat today, officials said, highlighting the country`s instability as NATO combat troops prepare to withdraw.
The US would continue with its efforts to open its consulate in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, a State Department official has said, as the top American diplomat in Beijing concluded his rare six day trip to the Chinese region.
The US on Thursday expressed concern
over "continued provocative actions and false allegations"
against its personnel in Pakistan and sought immediate action
to allow them to operate with full security.
More than 40 years after bad blood between India and China closed down the Indian consulate in Tibetan capital Lhasa, a Chinese Foreign Ministry official says New Delhi can re-open it any time it wants.
