Afghanistan, Iran Stress on Robust Action Against Terrorism

(Last Updated On: August 8, 2016)


Iran has committed the Afghan government serious cooperation on suppressing terrorists and drug dealers.

During a meeting with his Iranian counterpart, national security adviser to president, Muhammad Hanif Atmar has called for Tehran-Kabul joint cooperation in fight against terrorism.

“Our friendship with Iran has turned into a great national capital of Afghanistan,” Atmar remarked.

He also said that Afghanistan is determined to fight terrorist groups including Daesh.

The best way to fight terrorism is expansion of friendly relations between the countries, he said.

Atmar added that Afghanistan believes that terrorism cannot be divided into good and bad categories and that the expansion of cordial relations is the best possible way to combat terrorism.

Organizing immigration and flow of Afghan immigrants to Iran, removing trade barriers, implementation of Chabahar Trilateral Agreements signed earlier in June, Khaf-Herat railroad completion, and other issues provided topics of negotiation in the meeting.

Expressing optimism, spokesman of the national security adviser, Tawab Ghorzang said that Iran will fulfill commitments in the short-and long-terms.

Meanwhile, a number of analysts believe that the Afghan government tries to prevent Iran’s intervention which has some documents too.

The pressing issue of current situation between Iran and Afghanistan is environmental disaster underway in Iranian side of the border where different governments of Afghanistan glossed over the fact that they had not been allowing Iranian side of the Hirmand River, which had since long passed the border and irrigated Iranian lands.

Iranian side of the border now experiences environmental disaster, with underground waters dwindling increasingly, thus rendering the region virtually inhospitable for the locals.

This comes as Tehran has repeatedly criticized the presence of American and NATO troops in Afghanistan.
