Iran rejects allegation of training Taliban

ISNA | July 4, 2018

Tehran – Iran’s embassy in Kabul rejected allegations of providing military training to Taliban militants, stressing on contribution to strengthen peace and stability in the war-torn country.

Iran’s embassy in Kabul rejected a report by some Western media, which claimed that members of Afghanistan’s Taliban militant group are being trained in Iran, saying such accusations are meant to harm close relations between the two neighbors.

The embassy said in a statement on Wednesday, “Terrorism and extremism are a common threat to all countries in the region and joint efforts and collective actions are an inevitable necessity to confront such a threat”.

“The goal of such unrealistic and baseless allegations is to wage a psychological war and damage friendly relations between the Iranian and Afghan governments,” it added.

The embassy reaffirms Tehran’s strong commitment to peace and stability in the friendly and neighboring country of Afghanistan.

“Instead of leveling baseless accusations against Afghanistan’s neighbors, the Western media should focus their attention on the real reasons behind the failures of the Afghan governments in combating terrorism in Afghanistan and avoid diverting public opinion. ” the statement said.

“As the Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly said, it has never extended its rifts with other countries to Afghanistan’s domestic affairs and seeks an increase in global efforts to reinforce the Afghan government and decrease its people’s suffering,” the statement added.

  1. Good report. It should be a no-brainer that Iran, on Afghanistan’s border, is interested not in promoting/training violent elements but rather in pursuing the goals of the elegant statements made throughout this concise, effective commentary. E.g., ““The goal of such unrealistic and baseless allegations is to wage a psychological war and damage friendly relations between the Iranian and Afghan governments.” … now, one might wonder: what “black funded” elements in the US empire, intent on destabilization in all areas/states not compliant with its own agenda, planted or goaded the “some Western media” noted in the text?

    Bottom line: it isn’t as if “We the Empire” haven’t f**ked up Afghanistan, by idiotic goals and policies and trillions of dollars better spent elsewhere for better purposes, for now approaching 20 years…with Iran next door, always forced to worry about spillover effects on its own landscape and people and workings of the state.
