Iran reacts at allegations linking the country to Farah war
By Khaama Press - Mon May 21 2018, 2:15 pm
A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran Bahram Qassemi told reporters that Tehran notes the allegations by certain sides in Afghanistan accusing the neighboring countries for supporting the Taliban after the past week attacks in Farah city.
Qassemi further added that the US commanders who have grown desperate at establishment of security in the country after years of extensive military presence in Afghanistan and shedding the blood of thousands of innocent people in the country, are attempting to accuse the Islamic Republic of Iran of supporting the Taliban to derail the public opinion from the real reasons behind the continued war in the country, according to Fars News.
In the meantime Qassemi said talks about water resources are also underway between the two countries and linking the issue to the internal problems in Afghanistan is not logical, correct and rational.
This comes as the Afghan defense Gen. Tariq Shah Bahrami had earlier said that the war in Farah has links with the water resources management issues.
The US Department of Defense or Pentagon had also said earlier that Washington cannot rule out the involvement of Iran in Farah violence.
