The Iranian president, who was addressing a joint press briefing with his Indonesian counterpart too, referred to the "success of Iranian women" and spoke about the common views of these two countries on international and regional issues, including Palestine and the situation in Afghanistan.

During the presser, Raisi also emphasised on the importance of the formation of an inclusive government with the presence of all ethnic groups, and the facilitation of educational opportunities, and social activities for women in Afghanistan.

Raisi also spoke about 35,000 children with disabilities in Afghanistan and said that "two decades of the United States’ presence in Afghanistan has brought nothing, but destruction and killing”.
