Iran’s Minister of the Interior Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said on Sunday that the United States, Israel and their regional agents want insecurity in the region.
Fazli called for the need for the strengthening of ties with neighboring country of Afghanistan and a post in political, economic, cultural and security cooperation.
“Our common enemies, the US, Israel and their regional agents, seek the spread of insecurity in the region, what we now are witnessing in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Yemen,” he added.
Rahmani Fazli said agreements in different fields, including water issues, Afghan refugee crisis, drug trafficking, transit and border security are among the goals of the summit in Tehran.
The Iranian Interior Minister also stressed on Iran’s readiness to carry out economic projects in Afghanistan and to help provide viable alternatives to illegal drug cultivation.
“We have to help each other prevent such events, since the legal route is provided for Afghan nationals to travel to Iran,” Fazli said, referring to the need to counter the Afghan nationals living in Iran.
He also stressed on Afghanistan’s determination to fight terrorist groups such as ISIS.
“We believe there is no good terrorism, and the best way to fight terrorism is to strengthen the friendly ties between countries,” he added.
