MP: Afghans Can Provide Their Own Security

“The Afghan nation -- which thanks to its hard work and alertness, brought the [former] Soviet [Union] to its knees -- is today capable of establishing sustainable security in the country without interference by outsiders,” Majlis (Parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi as saying on Saturday.

The Iranian official made the remark during a meeting with the second deputy speaker of Afghanistan's Parliament, Ahmad Behzad.

Boroujerdi also called for the enhancement of Tehran-Kabul ties in political, economic, and cultural fields.

Behzad, for his part said that the Afghan nation will never forget Iran's hospitality and support for Afghans during years of war and disorder in Afghanistan.

“The Afghan nation always considers the security of the Islamic Republic as its own security,” the Afghan official said.

Behzad also said that establishing regional security and stability is impossible without the participation of friendly nations such as Iran, adding that “we should increase regional security within the framework of regional cooperation, so that foreign forces would have no justification for [their] presence in the region.”

His remarks came after Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier-General Ahmad Vahidi said that the Islamic Republic was committed to the restoration of stability and security in Afghanistan.

The Iranian defense minister who is on an official visit to Afghanistan at the invitation of his Afghan counterpart Abdul Rahim Wardak, further said that Tehran is ready to expand relations with Kabul in various areas, including campaigns against drugs and terrorism as well as defense cooperation.
