The deputy ambassador of Iran in Kabul, Sayed Hasan Murtazavi, on Sunday met with the Afghan Attorney General Mawlavi shamsuddin Pahlavan to discuss judicial and legal cooperation and handing over the Iranian prisoners in Afghanistan to Iran authorities, the Iranian Embassy said in a statement.

Pahlavan promised that the handing over of the Iranian prisoners in Afghanistan would begin soon to the Iranian side while adding that Afghan authorities would follow the demands of the Islamic Republic of Iran following the “expansion of relations and commonalities between the two countries,” the statement read.

In the meeting, the deputy ambassador, Murtazavi, said, “For Tehran, the pursuit of issues relating to Iranian prisoners in Afghanistan has in the past been accompanied by disturbances, but we hope that in the current circumstances, the problems of Iranian prisoners are solved in the shortest period so they can return to Iran.”

It is worth mentioning that the Afghan Attorney General’s Office, led by Pahlavan, visited Iran two months ago. As a result, 857 Afghan inmates were handed over by Iran authorities to Afghan officials.

Meanwhile, according to the statement of the Iran Embassy in Kabul, around 6,000 Afghan prisoners are currently serving their sentences in Iranian prisons.

This gesture of goodwill followed the handing over of the Afghanistan Embassy to the present government in late February.
