Dr Abdullah Abdullah is one of the most well known faces of Afghan politics not just in Afghanistan but around the world. He is the "Yar" who has invited our Mehman e Yar team to visit him at his residence in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Being one of the leaders of Jamiat Islami and a close confidant of the Late Ahmad Shah Masood, he was intricately involved in the events leading to the overthrow of the Taliban.
After the coming into power of the Interim and then the Transitional Governments in Afghanistan, Dr Abdullah was a key member of the Cabinet in both governments, serving in the very important post of Foreign Minister.
He was replaced in 2007 by Dr Rangin Spanta and has since not occupied any government posts.
