Kazemi Qomi says advocating for a government with diverse groups and “righteous individuals” doesn’t mean interfering in Afghanistan’s affairs.

Iran’s special representative for Afghanistan added that Iran supports constructive initiatives to improve Afghanistan’s situation.

According to ISNA, he stated at a press conference after the Afghanistan Contact Group meeting that political recommendations to the Taliban are “well-intentioned, not interference.”

The second Contact Group meeting on Afghanistan included Iran, Pakistan, China, and Russia. Qomi emphasized Afghanistan’s importance and concerns regarding terrorism.

He referenced terrorist attacks in Moscow, Kandahar and against Chinese citizens in Pakistan, emphasizing that terrorism affects both Afghanistan and its neighbours. He added that today’s discussions in Tehran focused on terrorism, security, and borders.

Qomi stressed Iran’s commitment to securing its border with Afghanistan, noting the construction of a modern wall. He believes Afghanistan’s developments significantly impact its surroundings, with terrorism and migration being major concerns.

He noted that appointing a UN special representative for Afghanistan was discussed at today’s Tehran meeting. Qomi emphasized that imposed or ineffective initiatives should not be supported.

Iran’s representative for Afghanistan commented on the Taliban’s absence from the Tehran meeting, stating it was their decision.

Zakir Jalali, a Taliban Foreign Ministry official, wrote on X that the group was invited but chose not to attend the Tehran meeting, expecting discussions through established, regular mechanisms.
