TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned Afghanistan’s ambassador to Tehran over recent offensive moves against the Iranian diplomatic missions in Afghanistan.
The ambassador of Afghanistan to Tehran was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday morning to provide an explanation for a series of recent moves against Iranian diplomatic missions in Afghanistan.
It came after the moves by a small group of certain political currents with a record of opposition to the Islamic Republic of Iran and to the good neighborliness between Iran and Afghanistan.
The groups recently made a series of insulting moves and violated the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Embassy and other missions in Afghanistan under the pretext that a number of Afghan nationals who had plans for illegal entry into Iran or had entered Iran illegally with the help of traffickers have died.
In the Saturday meeting in Tehran, Director General of West Asia of the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed concern about the impact of the wrong measures by that small group on the neighborly relations between Iran and Afghanistan.
A few days ago, a group of demonstrators gathered outside the Iranian Embassy in Kabul in protest at what they called mistreatment of Afghan nationals by Iran’s security forces after three Afghan migrants were killed and a number of others injured when a vehicle of human traffickers crashed in Iran’s central province of Yazd.
