Iran is ready to invest in different sectors in Afghanistan, Iranian investors said on Monday.

Iranian investors say that Iran’s export statistics to Afghanistan are more than any other countries.

Foreign investments role in Afghanistan has always been discussed but insecurity has been the major challenge against this process.

Iran is one of the most important donors to Afghanistan, which has kept its promises to help the reconstruction of the war-ravaged country. Iran has built roads, power transmission lines, border stations and other infrastructure projects.

Officials in The Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA) noted that In an attempt to boost foreign trade, Afghanistan needs to expand trade relations with the neighboring country and Iran’s role is valuable in investing in Afghanistan.

Iran Chamber of Commerce has also vowed that Iran’s exports and investments will increase in Afghanistan.

According to presented statistics, Iranian goods imports to Afghanistan reach to more than $ 2 billion annually which have been said that in contrast, Afghanistan’s export to Iran is in a low level.

Previously, President Ashraf Ghani in his visit to Iran urged Iran’s private sector to invest in Afghanistan.

During his recent visit to Tehran, Afghan and Iranian presidents stressed on their will for starting a new chapter in relations between the two countries and stepping up cooperation to deal with challenges common for both countries.
The National Unity Government’s efforts to improve relations with neighboring Iran is coming as a follow-up to former president Hamid Karzai’s visit to Tehran in 2013.

The two leaders agreed on enhanced efforts by the two countries to tackle the compounding security threats posed by terrorism as well as drug production and trafficking.

The two countries have also signed agreements of cooperation in other areas such as refugees and economic ties between the two countries.

The United Arab Emirates has stopped issuing new visas to citizens of 13 mostly Muslim-majority countries, including Afghanistan and Pakistan.

A source briefed on the matter told Reuters the visas had temporarily stopped being issued to Afghans, Pakistanis and citizens of several other countries over security concerns, but did not provide details of those concerns.

A document, sent to companies operating in a business park and seen by Reuters, cited an immigration circular that came into effect on November 18.

The document said applications for new employment and visitor visas had been suspended for nationals – those outside the UAE – of 13 countries until further notice.

The ban also applies to citizens of Algeria, Kenya, Iraq, Lebanon, Somalia, Yemen, Iran, Syria, Libya, Tunisia and Turkey, it says.

It was not clear if there were any exceptions to the ban.

The UAE’s Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship had no immediate comment when contacted by Reuters.

The visa ban comes two months after the Gulf state established formal ties with Israel, a move that broke with decades of Arab policy and angered some Muslim states and communities, Reuters reports.

Still, the source familiar with the matter said the ban was unrelated to the UAE’s relationship with Israel and was expected to last only for a brief period.

Last week, Pakistan’s foreign ministry said the UAE had stopped processing new visas for its citizens and those of some other countries, but that those already holding valid visas were not affected and could still enter the UAE.

Diego Maradona has died from a heart attack less than a month after turning 60.

The Argentinian football legend died at home, his lawyer said, just three weeks after having surgery on a blood clot in his brain.

Maradona – known by millions around the world – won the World Cup with Argentina in 1986, after knocking England out of the tournament by scoring what is widely considered one of the greatest goals ever.

Regarded as one of the greatest players of all-time on the pitch, his life off the pitch was equally notorious – amid battles with drug and alcohol addiction.

Argentina’s president Alberto Fernandez decreed three days of mourning following Maradona’s death.  

“You took us to the top of the world. You made us immensely happy. You were the greatest of all,” the Argentine leader tweeted.

“Thanks for having existed, Diego. We will miss you for a lifetime.”
