Iran’s Armed Forces maintain full security in eastern borders with Afghanistan: Military Cmdr.

The deputy commander of Iran’s Air Defense Force has assured the Iranian people that the country’s eastern borders with Afghanistan are safe and secure amid Taliban’s rapid takeover of the war-ravaged country.

Brigadier General Alireza Elhami made the remarks on Monday while explaining about the latest situation of security along Iran’s eastern borders, saying, “If [Iranian] people have concerns about possible insecurity along eastern borders … [I assure them that] due to preparedness of [the Iranian] Armed Forces, there is no problem and no ground for any concerns” in this regard.

“I tell my compatriots that there is no ground for concerns about security of the country’s borders, because the powerful Armed Forces of the Islamic Iran, especially the Air Defense Force … are monitoring areas many kilometers beyond our territorial borders.”
