Mehr News Agency quoted Muttaqi as commending Iran for offering broad services to the Afghan nation under the present tough circumstances.

The minister also welcomed the continuation of bilateral consultations and the arrival of an Iranian delegation for water talks.

The Iranian foreign minister condoled with the Afghan government and nation over the fatalities resulting from Wednesday’s earthquake in Khost and Paktika provinces.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian informed Muttaqi that part of Iran’s contribution to the quake victims had been flown to Afghanistan by two cargo planes.
