Pres Raisi urges regional countries to contribute in Afghanistan security

Tehran, IRNA – President Ebrahim Raisi hoped for formation of a government in Afghanistan which would represent all groups and strata of people in the country and said regional countries could play an effective role in building security in Afghanistan.

The Iranian President made the remarks in a meeting with Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi here on Tuesday.

Raisi said Iran saw no restrictions in growing economic and security relations with Pakistan as well as exchange of economic and political delegations between the two countries.

On Afghanistan issue, he said Iran was seriously concerned about the plights of people there and highlighted the importance of cooperation with Pakistan as a country that plays an effective role in materializing security and tranquility in the country.

President Raisi said Iran hold the US responsible of insecurity in Afghanistan which is due to the presence of ISIS after the expulsion of the Americans from Afghanistan because "the problems in Afghanistan are the work of the Americans because ISIS was formed by the United States."

Referring to the meeting of foreign ministers of Afghanistan's neighboring countries hosted by Iran, he hoped that the meeting can cut off the hands of Americans from the region and find a solution to solve Afghanistan's problems.

Foreign Minister Qureshi underscored that Iran and Pakistan as two neighbors of Afghanistan were keen to work for national peace and reconciliation in this country.

Afghanistan needs urgent assistance which has to come from its neighbors and the international community, he said.
