The AISS press release said: “Araghchi stated that security in the region is an integrated concept and it can be said, without exaggeration, that peace and stability in Afghanistan guarantees peace and stability in Iran.”

The minister also spoke about the Comprehensive Document of Strategic Cooperation between Iran and Afghanistan and explained that five committees had been set up under it.

The committee’s work was broadly divided into economic, cultural, defence and security, citizens and water.

Iran’s main goal with this “comprehensive” document is to find “a ground for cooperation with Afghanistan in all these areas.”

He also addressed the principles set out in the document, saying “non-interference in each other’s affairs”, “non-aggression” and “non-use of each other’s territory to attack and invade other countries” are the most fundamental principles of the document.

Araghchi also met Abdullah Abdullah, chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation and discussed bilateral ties between Tehran and Kabul.

He “pledged continued cooperation of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Afghanistan and to the peace process,” Abdullah’s office said.
