Drug, Terrorism Fights Are Linked: Iran

“We believe that fighting terrorism and organized crime will be an incomplete attempt without fighting drug trafficking,” Mohammad-Najjar said in a meeting with Afghanistan's First Vice President General Mohammad Qasim Fahim on Wednesday.

Mohammad-Najjar arrived in the Afghan capital of Kabul on Tuesday for a two-day official visit.

The Iranian minister pointed to the increase in opium production in Afghanistan and said Iran is ready to offer Kabul equipment and training in order to provide alternatives to poppy cultivation, ISNA reported.

Mohammad-Najjar described Afghanistan's Parliamentary elections as a positive development for encouraging popular participation in managing the country's affairs.

“The people's participation in the elections is a major step towards the peaceful coexistence of all religious and tribal groups.”

The Iranian interior minister said Tehran believes all internal affairs should be entrusted to the Afghan government.

“Entrusting security affairs and the reconstruction of economic infrastructure to the [Afghan] government is considered the first step on this uneven path.”

Mohammad-Najjar also said that Iran would like Afghanistan to make progress in every field and that Tehran would not withhold any help to the neighboring country in this regard.

Fahim welcomed the expansion of cooperation between Iran and Afghanistan and said “the two countries' ties are influential in the fate of the region and the world.”

“We will not forget that the Islamic Republic of Iran never abandoned the Afghan people in different historical eras, and has continued its support and aid to Afghans,” Fahim concluded.
