Ending foreign interference inevitable for Afghan peace: Iran envoy
IRNA

Iran’s ambassador to Pakistan voiced Tehran’s readiness to assist Afghan people in restoring peace to their country stressing that any effort to bring peace to Afghanistan requires putting an end to all sorts of external interventions in the war-torn country.

Releasing a statement on Thursday, Seyyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini said: "Iran, like in the past, is ready to provide any requested help for the advancement of peace and will share its good experiences and facilities with its Afghan brothers and sisters to achieve an enduring peace."

He said that intra-Afghan talks could be a “harbinger” for the long awaited peace, IRNA reported.

The ambassador noted that for taking maximum advantage of the existing opportunity for peace, there should be an end to all sorts of external interventions in Afghanistan, and Afghans should be allowed to freely decide for their destiny.

“Responsible withdrawal of foreign forces, formation of mutual trust between the negotiating parties and concentration on political solutions, can provide a hopeful perspective for the talks,” the envoy maintained.

He called for preserving “valuable achievements” of the Afghan people, including their constitution, democratic structure, inclusive political participation, women’s rights and rights of ethnic and religious minorities.

This, he said, could prevent any unintended future crisis and bring about enduring peace.

He said that Afghan refugees were closely following these negotiations. “They are impatiently waiting for the negotiations to bear fruit so that they can return to their motherland. They are restive to reconstruct their country and witness the growth and rise of their children in their own land,” he said.
