TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry reiterated Tehran’s call for de-escalation of tensions in Afghanistan and inclusive dialogue among Afghan groups.
In a post on his Twitter account on Tuesday, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh said Iran is “closely following alarming developments in Afghanistan.”
“Iran calls for immediate deescalation, respect for rule of law, and inclusive dialogue,” he added.
“Destructive policies of the US has had lingering consequences in our region and now its utterly irresponsible conduct is taking a toll,” the Iranian spokesperson said.
Afghanistan continues to suffer from a recent spike in violence, a legacy of the decades of wars in the impoverished nation and the US invasion of the country.
Last month, a series of explosions targeted a girl’s school in the Dasht-e-Barchi area of Kabul that is predominantly populated by Hazaras. At least 80 students, mostly girls from the Hazara community, were killed in the attack.
