Iran, Afghanistan underscore consolidation of relations

TEHRAN (FNA)- Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and Iran’s Ambassador to Kabul Mohammad Reza Bahrami, in a meeting on Monday, explored new avenues for the widening and deepening of all-out bilateral ties.

In the meeting, Abdullah thanked the Iranian government and nation for their full support for the Afghan government and nation.

Abdullah further called for promotion of Kabul-Tehran all-out cooperation, and expressed the hope that Tehran would continue assisting Afghan refugees in Iran.

Bahrami, for his part, congratulated the Afghan official for formation of Afghanistan’s new unity government.

The envoy said Iranian government is seeking to reinforce relations with its neighboring countries, Afghanistan in particular.

Iran is one of the most important donors to Afghanistan which has kept its promises to help to the reconstruction of the war-hit country.

Iran has built some roads, power transmission lines, and border stations, among the other infrastructure projects which would better link the two nations.

Iran has also contributed more than $50mln annually to Afghan anti-narcotics efforts in the last decade.
