Iran seeking security, stability in Afghanistan: Envoy

Tehran, IRNA – Special envoy of the Iranian President to Afghanistan and the Head of the Iranian mission to the country Hassan Kazemi Qomi said on Monday that Iran has a comprehensive roadmap for working in Afghanistan and is seeking security, stability and welfare in the neighboring country.

Iran has a long-term look at Afghanistan and has different plans for joining the infrastructures of the two countries in different areas, Kazemi Qomi said according to Afghan Voice Agency (AVA).

He said that Afghanistan is a neighbor that can be a strategic ally in Iran’s foreign policy.

It is now one year and a half past the time when the American forces withdrew from Afghanistan and we are witnessing a new government in Kabul, Kazemi Qomi said, adding that Iran has been after interaction with the new government in Afghanistan during the new period in the country.

Noting that the US does not tolerate stability in Afghanistan and does not want the country to interact with its neighbors, he said that the enemy tries to turn the geography of Afghanistan into a threat for Iran while Iran will pass through this phase by taking rational policies.
