  1. A joint mechanism must be tried with Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who are experts in defeating Taliban like terrorist groups…the Iranian general Solemani who heads IRGC must be invited to Kabul for discussion

    1. The ANDSF do not need the help of the IGRC. The Commandos are more than capable.
