Iran hosting Afghans with best facilities: Mousavi

Iran hosting Afghans with best facilities: Mousavi

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi stressed that Iran is hosting over three million Afghans and it has supported them with the best facilities over the past 40 years without any discrimination.

He made the remarks in response to questions and media hypes over drowning of a number of Afghan nationals in the Harirud River near Iran’s northeastern borders.

“From the first hours some reports were published in various media about the issue, the relevant institutions put a quick and accurate investigation of the incident on the agenda. Since the issue was related to the lives of human beings, especially the citizens of the brotherly and neighboring country, Afghanistan, the issue was dealt with double sensitivity and an attempt was also made to take all the aspects of the incident into account at the earliest,” he said.

Accordingly, all relevant institutions were mobilized to obtain a comprehensive assessment and clarify the facts. Iran’s border guards reported that there has been no such incident at that time, nor have there been any clashes between the Iranian forces and Afghan nationals. Additional investigations by other agencies also confirm the border guard's report and completely reject the occurrence of the incident as well as alleged involvement,” Mousavi added.

"I would like to emphasize once again that the Iran and Afghanistan have long borders, which, despite many ups and downs, have long been a good example of cooperation and friendly relations," the spokesman stated.

“Providing jobs, free education, free health facilities and many other facilities that are widely available to Afghan guests are indicative of Iran's good hospitality,” Mousavi stressed.
