Daesh common enemy of Afghanistan, Iran: Taliban

TEHRAN, Jan. 08 (MNA) – A political official of the Taliban denounced the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group as the common enemy of Afghanistan and Iran.

In a meeting with Iran’s special envoy for Afghanistan, held in Kabul, acting deputy prime minister of Taliban for political affairs, Mohammed Abdul Kabir, offered his condolences to Iran over a January 3 terrorist attack that killed over 90 people in Iran’s southern city of Kerman.

Branding the Daesh terrorists as the common enemy of Afghanistan and Iran, Abdul Kabir said the notorious group seeks to upset security in the region and murder innocent people.

He also appreciated Iran for its assistance to Afghanistan, which he said favors closer relations with all neighbors.

The clear policy of the Taliban is that no threat originating from Afghanistan should be posed to other countries, he stated, highlighting Kabul’s efforts to play a positive role in the establishment of regional security and stability.

For his part, the Iranian envoy, Hassan Kazemi Qomi, said Iran is trying to incorporate Afghanistan into regional cooperation.

The envoy also expressed confidence that the groups and parties seeking to incite discord and division between Iran and Afghanistan will get nowhere.

Apart from the political developments, the two officials discussed ways to promote economic cooperation between the two Muslim neighbors.
