Iran’s FM Asserts Arrival of Daesh Leaders in Afghanistan

Amir Hossein Abdollahian, the foreign minister of Iran, has posited that leaders and combatants affiliated with Daesh have recently migrated to Afghanistan from Iraq, Syria, and certain regions of Libya.

The relocation of Daesh’s leaders to Afghanistan is now deemed one of the primary challenges confronting the interim Afghan government.

The Islamic Emirate has yet to respond to the statements made by the Iranian foreign minister.

Previously, Zabiullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate, asserted to TOLOnews that Daesh’s influence within Afghanistan is being suppressed, and there exists no threat emanating from Afghan territory towards other nations.

Janat Fahim Chakari, a political analyst, highlighted that one of the most significant achievements in Afghanistan at present is its improved security situation.

“The neighboring countries need not harbor concerns; they should instead focus on addressing internal matters. Afghanistan’s current major accomplishment is the assurance of security,” he emphasized. “Any attempts by terrorist groups to instigate destructive actions are promptly quelled by the governing authorities.”

The Iranian foreign minister expressed apprehensions regarding any form of instability in Afghanistan, underscoring the potential impact on the border region between the two countries.

Abdollahian also voiced worries about the influx of Afghan refugees into Iran. He emphasized the necessity of forming an inclusive government, stating that Iran does not recognize the Taliban’s political standing, which has displeased the interim Afghan government.
