Iran News - - FRONT PAGE -

TEHRAN - Head of Iran’s High Coun­cil of Hu­man Rights Mo­ham­mad Javad Lar­i­jiani said on Sun­day that Iran fully sup­ports restora­tion of peace and de­vel­op­ment in Afghanistan.

Lar­i­jani made the re­marks in a meet­ing with an Afghan del­e­ga­tion in Tehran on Sun­day.

Tehran be­lieves that the restora­tion of peace and de­vel­op­ment will pave the way for the ex­pan­sion of co­op­er­a­tion with neigh­bor­ing coun­tries more than be­fore, he said.

There ex­ists suit­able grounds for ex­pan­sion of ju­di­ciary, in­ter­na­tional as well as hu­man rights co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Iran and Afghanistan, he added.

Fawzia Koofi, the head of the Civil So­ci­ety, Hu­man Rights and Women Rights of Par­lia­ment who led the del­e­ga­tion de­scribed the meet­ing as be­ing very fruit­ful.

Grounds for the ex­pan­sion of in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Iran and Afghanistan are well pre­pared, Koofi said.

Ex­change of views and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two sides’ of­fi­cials will help im­prove the sta­tus of hu­man rights and the amend­ment of ex­ist­ing rules and reg­u­la­tions, she said.
