Iran Attends Afghan Peace Conference

Iran joined a number of regional countries in Russia for a new round of International Afghanistan Peace Conference to find a diplomatic solution to problems that have plagued Afghanistan for years. Delivering a speech at the conference in Moscow on Friday, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Asia-Pacific Affairs Ebrahim Rahimpour outlined Tehran’s stances on the situation in neighboring Afghanistan, Tasnim News Agency reported. Rahimpour noted that Iran has been hosting some three million Afghan refugees over the past decades, voicing Tehran’s readiness to cooperate with the Kabul government for the establishment of peace in Afghanistan and for the settlement of local and regional problems, including drug trafficking and security issues. “Regional countries should express determination to fight terrorism as a clear message for terrorist groups,” he said. It was the third regional meeting on Afghanistan in five months. In December 2016, Russia hosted a trilateral meeting with China and Pakistan. In March, the Russian Foreign Ministry had announced that at least 12 countries, including the US, had been invited to the Moscow conference. The US, however, turned down the invitation and refused to attend the conference.
