TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran Vows to Help Afghanistan in War on Terrorism

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami promised the Afghan people that Tehran will remain beside them in the fight against the terrorist groups.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami promised the Afghan people that Tehran will remain beside them in the fight against the terrorist groups.

"We are committed to the campaign against terrorism, consider Afghanistan's security as our own security and will do whatever we can with all our power in the fight against terrorism," General Hatami said in a joint press conference with his Afghan counterpart General Tariq Shah Bahrami in Tehran on Monday.

He added that Iran is fully aware of the situation and security threats against Afghanistan, regretting the terrorist acts in the country.

General Bahrami, for his part, appreciated Iran for its assistance to Afghanistan in the past four decades, and said, "At present, terrorism and drug trafficking are threatening Afghanistan and the region, and given the close views we share with Iran, we hope that the country will help and support us in fighting terrorism and stopping drug trafficking."

He also called for Iran's all-out support for the peace process in Afghanistan.

In relevant remarks on Sunday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri underlined that Tehran and Kabul were resolved to boost their cooperation in the ongoing campaign against the terrorist groups.

"The shared backgrounds between the two countries of Iran and Afghanistan, including religion and language, have brought them together in such way that no obstacle can undermine their close relations, specially in combatting the terrorist groups," General Baqeri said during his meeting with General Bahrami in Tehran.

The top Iranian commander, meantime, said that his country has spared no effort to help restore security and stability in Afghanistan.

"Since the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and after Afghanistan was occupied, the Islamic Republic of Iran has always stood by the nation of Afghanistan and the Mujahideen to help them fight against the occupiers,” General Baqeri said.

He also expressed the hope that the Afghan military delegation’s visit would result in more cooperation between the two countries’ armed forces.
