Invaders must shoulder consequences of their destructive role in Afghanistan

London, IRNA – Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the European Union Gholamhossein Dehqani said that the NATO military alliance must shoulder the responsibility for the negative consequences of their invasion of Afghanistan.

Dehqani made the remarks on Thursday, addressing a virtual meeting of the International Center for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD).

The Iranian ambassador elaborated the reasons behind the current crisis in Afghanistan, noting that Iran has always suffered from the crises in the neighboring country.

NATO’s invasion of Afghanistan destroyed the social structure and lifestyle in the country and those who invaded must take the responsibility of their malign role in Afghanistan, he underlined.

While the invaders systematically evade their humanitarian responsibilities and shut their borders to Afghan refugees, the mere rhetoric wouldn’t help solve the crisis in Afghanistan, Iranian envoy stated.

He warned that it shouldn’t be taken for granted that only neighbor countries must host Afghan migrants, pointing to the cruel sanctions imposed on Iran by the US.

Dehqani said that the international community should prevent Afghan people from leaving their country by providing them with effective assistance.
