Saudi Claim of Iran Support for Taliban Rejected

Iran’s Embassy in Kabul dismissed as “bizarre” claims by a Saudi diplomat about Iran’s alleged links to Taliban militants and armed groups inside Afghanistan. In a Tuesday statement, the embassy said it regarded the unprofessional and divisive claims by the Saudi chargé d’affaires in Kabul, Mishari al-Harbi, as “baseless” and completely reject them, Press TV reported.  The Saudi diplomat recently accused Iran of supporting the Taliban militants in Afghanistan.  “The claim of Iran’s support for armed groups inside Afghanistan by a regime that had recognized the former Taliban government and still has broad links with various terrorist groups in the country and the entire region seems bizarre,” the statement said.  This is while Iranian diplomats have themselves been victims of acts of violence and terror in Afghanistan, it said. Taliban militants killed Mahmoud Saremi, an IRNA correspondent, along with eight Iranian diplomats, in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif in 1998. The statement said Iran reiterates its principled policy of helping promote Afghan peace and stability.
