Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi says the military presence of the United States and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Afghanistan brought nothing to that country, but destruction and killing of its people.
Raisi made the remarks in a Monday meeting with the new ambassador of Latvia, Peteris Vaivars, during which the two sides reviewed bilateral relations and international cooperation.
“Today, at the international arena, we are witnessing serious problems as well as the injustice that is being done to some countries like Afghanistan and Palestine,” he said.
Reflecting on the 20-year military presence of the United States and NATO in the neighboring country of Afghanistan, Iran’s chief executive said, “Presence of the US and NATO in Afghanistan had no other outcome but destruction and massacre [of people], and did not lead to establishment of security neither for Afghanistan, nor for the rest of the region.”
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is opposed to any measure that would goad the world toward unilateralism and war,” Iran’s president said.
