Afghanistan needs to take ‘practical’ actions to resolve issues with Iran: Amir-Abdollahian
SAEDNEWS: Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says Afghanistan should take “practical” actions to resolve the existing issues between the two countries, including border security and water share.
SAEDNEWS: Amir-Abdollahian made the remark in a meeting with Taliban’s caretaker foreign minister, Amir Khan Muttaqi, in Tehran on Sunday. He said Tehran and Kabul have important relations in various aspects and expressed hope that Afghanistan’s acting Taliban government would cooperate in practice to resolve some existing problems.

The top Iranian diplomat further pointed to a recent conference held in Tehran in support of Palestine and hailed the active participation of the Afghan delegation, led by Muttaqi, in the confab.

He also outlined the latest developments in Gaza amid Israel’s war on the besieged strip and urged all Muslim and freedom-seeking countries to help the Palestinian people in the face of the occupying regime’s genocidal crimes.

The Taliban’s caretaker foreign minister, for his part, lauded Iran’s move to hold the Tehran conference on Palestine at a time when the United Nations Security Council as well as other world organizations and countries remain silent about Israel’s war crimes in Gaza.

Muttaqi hailed Iran’s principled stance on the oppressed Palestinian people and stressed the importance of providing more support for the resistance front and the Palestinians’ battle against the Zionists’ occupation.

He called for the promotion of relations with Tehran in various fields, including water, border security, trade and judicial and consular cooperation (SOURCE: PRESSTV).
