Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Chief Executive of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Abdullah Abdullah discussed a range of issues including peace process in Afghanistan.
The meeting was held on the sidelines of a conference on Afghanistan’s peace process in Switzerland’s city of Geneva on Tuesday, IRNA reported.
Both sides also reviewed bilateral issues and the conference’s agenda as well as latest developments of Afghanistan peace process.
The top Iranian diplomat has traveled to Geneva to participate in the two-day conference on Afghanistan, held by the United Nations.
According to Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi, Zarif would express his country’s stance on the restoration of peace in Afghanistan.
Qassemi said on Monday that Zarif is also scheduled to hold talks with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, and a number of other foreign officials on the sidelines of the conference.
The United Nations, which is co-hosting the summit at Geneva's Palais des Nations with the Afghan government, said the conference “will be crucial in measuring results against the $15.2 billion committed by the international community for Afghanistan in 2016”.
