Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Kabul: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran published a statement on Wednesday (September 28) saying that Hussain Amir Abdullahian said in a meeting with Chaba Karushi, President of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly: terrorism is still the main challenge in the Middle East region.
Abdullahian added that with the worsening of the situation in Afghanistan, extremism has become a source of serious concern for the countries of the region.
In the announcement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran, it is stated that Chaba Karushi also emphasized in this meeting that the public expectation of the countries is the activation of the General Assembly to deal with issues related to global security.
In this forum, Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif also said that Islamabad, like other countries, is concerned about the activities of terrorist groups from Afghanistan.
On the other hand, the Foreign Minister of Tajikistan also stated in this forum that Afghanistan is quickly becoming a refuge for terrorists and the spread of extremism in the region.
He added that Central Asian militants have moved to northern Afghanistan to destabilize the region and are seeking to create tension near the Tajik border.
But the government of the Islamic Emirate has rejected these claims.
Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanekzai, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Emirate, on Tuesday (September 27) called the statements of the Prime Minister of Pakistan as soft-hearted by making Afghanistan a victim.
It should be noted that after the claim that Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of the al-Qaeda terrorist group, was killed in the country's capital by American drones, the concern of neighboring countries has increased due to the fact that Afghanistan has become a safe place for terrorists.
