Iran calls for condemnation of terror attacks in Afghanistan by OIC

Tehran (ISNA) - Iran’s Foreign Minister and Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation have held talks about Afghanistan over the phone

Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Yousef Al-Othaimeen have held talks about Afghanistan over the phone.

In the telephone conversation, Amir-Abdollahian, in addition to reviewing the latest situation of relations between Iran and the OIC, exchanged views on the situation in Afghanistan with Othaimeen.

Amir-Abdollahian described extremist groups as one of the most important problems faced by the region.

The Iranian foreign minister referred to the Daesh terrorist group’s movements in Afghanistan and stressed Iran's support for a more active role by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, especially its secretary general, in Afghanistan.

In response, while congratulating Amir-Abdollahian on his appointment as Iran’s foreign minister, Othaimeen presented a brief report on the actions of the OIC in addressing the latest developments in Afghanistan as well as on its statement about the war-torn country.

Othaimeen emphasized the need for the inclusiveness of the new government in Afghanistan and respect for human rights and women's rights. He announced the OIC’s solidarity with the Afghan people and underlined the need to ensure that Afghanistan does not become a haven for terrorist groups.

Meanwhile, Amir-Abdollahian referred to the recent terrorist and criminal acts of Daesh and its brutal attacks on worshipers in two mosques in Kunduz and Kandahar. The foreign minister called for the condemnation of these inhumane acts by the secretary general and members of the OIC.

He stated that the aim of these terrorist acts was to cause sectarian division in Afghanistan.

Othaimeen stressed that members of the OIC do not differentiate between Islamic sects, and in its view, all Muslim people have the same citizenship rights, and it is not permissible for Muslims and worshipers of any sect to be targeted by terrorists.

The OIC’s secretary general strongly condemned the recent terrorist acts in Afghanistan and wished divine mercy on the victims of these attacks and immediate healing of the injured.

The Iranian foreign minister expressed satisfaction with the assistance of the Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in facilitating the reopening of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s diplomatic mission in the OIC headquarters in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Amir-Abdollahian also called for the continuation of this assistance.

Othaimeen expressed hope for the continuation of the Iranian-Saudi talks as a facilitator of the reopening of Iran's diplomatic mission at the OIC. He voiced hope that the current contacts and talks between the two sides will lead to positive results for both countries.
