Iran, Afghanistan confer on JCPOA, migrants, water, fighting terrorism


Tehran (ISNA) - Iran's deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araghchi met on Tuesday with Afghanistan’s Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah in Kabul.

During the meeting held in Sepidar Palace in Kabul, Araghchi announced that he has traveled to the country to attend Iran-Afghanistan-India trilateral meeting and discuss the document of comprehensive cooperation between Tehran and Kabul.

He said, “The work by three committees of the quintuplet committees on reaching the comprehensive document of joint cooperation has reached the final level”.

“The work tasked with two other committees has progressed by 90 percent and the finalization of the document will lead to expansion and flourishing of the bilateral relations,” Araghchi added.

“Iran’s policy toward Afghanistan is based on national sovereignty and cooperation with Kabul government and our country supports Kabul government's initiative to preserve national unity and create stability, peace and security in Afghanistan,” the top Iranian official went on to say.

Stressing on the importance of joint fighting against terrorism, Araghchi said, “There is no good and bad terrorism. Iran attaches great importance to Afghanistan’s security and since Afghanistan is endangered by terrorism, cooperation with Iran is necessary”.

They also exchanged views on important political, economic and commercial issues.

Abdullah Abdullah, for his part, extended gratitude to Iran for contributing extensive amounts of help to Afghan people and government and added, “great deal of work has been done on the document of comprehensive cooperation and the quintuplet committees with Iran’s benevolence and good will.”

 “Terrorism is the main threat endangering Afghanistan’s national security and as a result joint cooperation between the two countries of Iran and Afghanistan on fighting terrorism is necessary and the rise of shared threats makes these kinds of cooperation more necessary,” said the Afghan official.
