Aminian made the remarks in his meeting with Afghan Acting Foreign Minister Mohammad Hanif Atmar on Tuesday.
The Iranian ambassador stressed Tehran’s support for intra-Afghan talks with the aim of reaching peace in the light of republicanism and called on all parties to safeguard the 19-year old achievements.
Atmar appreciated Tehran’s support for the peace talks in Afghanistan and Iran’s full cooperation with his country, especially with regards to the emigrants residing in Iran, as well as for identity registration, distribution of electronic birth certificates, and printed passports for them.
The two officials also discussed the importance of regional consensus on the issue of peace and immediate ceasefire in Afghanistan.
According to the Afghan media, Afghan peace talks will resume in Doha on Tuesday.
Iran on Saturday welcomed talks among the Afghanistan government, political groups and the Taliban, stressing the need for foreign states to stay away from negotiations to help an intra-Afghan agreement.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes start of intra-Afghan talks among the Afghan government, the political groups and Taliban and hopes that the talks will lead to desirable results to the benefit of the establishment of endurable peace and stability in Afghanistan and security in the region, without foreign meddling and within the framework of comprehensive understanding among Afghans,” the Iranian foreign ministry said in a statement.
The statement reiterated Iran’s position that the problems in Afghanistan cannot be resolved militarily, adding, “Continued presence of foreign forces is one of the main reasons for continued war in Afghanistan.”
“The Islamic Republic of Iran hopes that the government, political groups and the Taliban can reach a lasting agreement by preserving the valuable achievements of the Afghan people, including the constitution, democratic structures, inclusive political participation, the rights and dignity of women, and the rights of ethnic and religious minorities to ensure peace, tranquility, well-being and prosperity of the Afghan people and in turn enable Afghan refugees to return to their country and play their part in the reconstruction, growth and development of Afghanistan,” it added.
The statement said that Iran reemphasizes its readiness to assist the advancement of the peace process in Afghanistan, and strongly condemns the US administration for using the intra-Afghan talks as a winning card in the upcoming presidential elections.
