Iran’s Parliament Speaker Says Afghan Govt Must be at Centre of Peace Talks

Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has said that Iran has always tried to preserve Afghanistan’s integrity, independence and security, adding “today, the strategic policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran is that any move towards peace in Afghanistan must be organized with the Afghan government at the center.”

He made the remarks in a joint press conference with the Chairman of the Afghan Senate House, Upper House of the Parliament, Fazal Hadi Muslimyar in Tehran on Saturday.

The Iranian parliament speaker criticized the US administration’s negotiations on Afghanistan in the absence of Afghan government, stressing that the Afghan government has to be present in any peace negotiation.

He noted that the Americans are not trustworthy in negotiations, something that could be seen in talks with Iran to reach the Iran nuclear deal.

Larijani further congratulated successful holding of parliamentary elections in Afghanistan recently, further wishing a good upcoming presidential election in the neighboring country.
