Iran VP says reliance on foreigners not to safeguard any government

Tehran, IRNA – Iran's First Vice-President Mohammad Mokhber on Wednesday rejected any reliance on foreign countries because such dependence will not guarantee survival of any government.

Mokhber made the remarks in the Second Meeting of Foreign Ministers of Afghanistan's Neighboring Countries underway in Tehran.

When the United States ran away from Afghanistan, it put the consequences of its two-decade-long inefficiency and occupation on the shoulder of Afghan people and the neighbors, the vice-president said in his speech.

Mokhber went on to say that Afghanistan's security is interrelated with its neighbors.

So, the Islamic Republic of Iran supported Pakistan's initiative to hold first round of talks between Afghanistan's neighboring countries and also accepted to be the host of the second round, Mokhber noted, adding that Tehran welcomes the third round to be held in Beijing.

As Mokhber stated, Afghan people have been suffering from instability, insecurity, war, and bloodshed for over four decades.

Further, he expressed condolences over the killing of prayers and other Afghan people in Kandahar and Kunduz.

Occupation of Afghanistan has brought nothing but insecurity, expansion of terrorism and extremism, destruction of independence, increase in production of narcotics, and economic backwardness, the first veep underlined.

As he stressed, the US unwise measures in Afghanistan failed.

Today, it is the duty of the people of Afghanistan and the caretaker government in that country not to let aggressors and reactionary regimes threaten their security, Mokhber underlined.

Then, he pointed to economic crisis as another tragedy in Afghanistan.

Earlier on Tuesday, the spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Saeed Khatibzadeh had said that what Afghan people expect from countries like the Islamic Republic of Iran is to help them go for their will, which is also asked for by four million Afghan people residing in Iran.

As the spokesman stressed, from the beginning, the Islamic Republic of Iran has underlined the importance of non-interference of foreigners and preservation of Afghanistan's independence and territorial integrity.
