Iran warns against re­lo­ca­tion of ter­ror­ist groups to Afghanistan, Cen­tral Asia

Iran Daily - - National -

Iran’s Deputy For­eign Min­is­ter Morteza Sar­madi warned against the re­lo­ca­tion of ter­ror­ist groups to Afghanistan and Cen­tral Asia af­ter their de­feats in Iraq and Syria.

Sar­madi made the re­marks in a meet­ing with Chief Ex­ec­u­tive of Afghanistan Ab­dul­lah Ab­dul­lah in Ta­jik­istan on Fri­day.

“We con­sider the se­cu­rity of Afghanistan as our own se­cu­rity,” the Ira­nian diplo­mat un­der­lined, say­ing Tehran would pro­vide Kabul with what­ever help nec­es­sary in fighting off the ter­ror­ist groups.

The Ira­nian of­fi­cial said the coun­try would spare no ef­fort to as­sist neigh­bor­ing Afghanistan in en­sur­ing se­cu­rity.

Ab­dul­lah voiced Afghanistan’s readi­ness to ac­cel­er­ate the im­ple­men­ta­tion of a com­pre­hen­sive doc­u­ment on Iran-afghanistan co­op­er­a­tion. The Afghan govern­ment’s top pri­or­i­ties in in­ter­ac­tion with Iran, as stip­u­lated in the com­pre­hen­sive co­op­er­a­tion deal, are se­cu­rity, wa­ter is­sues and eco­nomic part­ner­ship, he added.

The two of­fi­cials met on the side­lines of a two-day meet­ing of the Shang­hai Co­op­er­a­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion held in Ta­jik­istan.
