Iran Expects Taliban to Ensure Security at Afghanistan Borders


Nasser Kanaani, the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson, said on Wednesday that Tehran expects Kabul to ensure security of borders inside Afghanistan.

During a press conference, Kanaani said that they had asked the Taliban to provide a positive response to Iran’s efforts of holding joint meetings in order to provide security at the borders between the two countries.

He added that currently talks with the Taliban regarding border security is in progress. Without divulging details, Kanaani also announced that presently both the countries are discussing an agreement of cooperation.

He emphasized that the border areas should have an atmosphere of peace and friendship, based on the interests of both the countries.

Recently, Taliban members have been involved in clashes with Iranian border guards several times over the past few months. Earlier, an Iranian border guard had been killed too during such a clash. The Iranian government had announced that their border guard was killed by armed rebels, but credible sources had said that he lost his life in a clash with Taliban forces.
