During an interview with Tolo news yesterday, the Foreign Minister of Iran Dr. Javad Zarif made some comments that can be taken as open interference in the internal affairs of Afghanistan.
Such irresponsible and misconceived remarks by Iranian officials have the potential of harming relations between two friendly and neighboring countries.
The Islamic Emirate is not in any UN terror list and comments by Iranian Foreign Minister in this regard are based on faulty information. We urge Iranian officials to avoid aggravating Afghan sensitives with such irresponsible statements.
We have always sought and continue to seek positive relations with all neighboring countries including Iran and we expect the same from them, therefore we call on them to desist from such remarks in the future so that we are also not forced to respond.
