Iran calls for restraint, ‘inclusive’ Afghanistan govt

Iran’s foreign ministry calls on “all parties” in Afghanistan to refrain from using violence and says Tehran supports the establishment of an “inclusive” government in Kabul.

“All groups and political parties [in Afghanistan] must refrain from using force and proceed using negotiation and talks,” ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh tells reporters at a televised press conference in Tehran.

Iran “is in constant communication with all political sides in Afghanistan” and “supports the peaceful transition of power to an inclusive government,” he adds, stressing that “the crisis has no military solution.”
