He reiterated that intra-Afghan talks could be harbinger for the long-awaited peace.
"The ambassador noted that for taking maximum advantage of this opportunity, there should be an end to all sorts of external interventions in Afghanistan, and Afghans should be allowed to freely decide their destiny," Hosseini added.
The Iranian ambassador pointed out that responsible withdrawal of foreign forces, formation of mutual trust between the negotiating parties and concentration on political solutions, can provide a hopeful perspective for the talks.
Hosseini called for preserving “valuable achievements” of Afghan people, including their constitution, democratic structure, inclusive political participation, women’s rights and rights of ethnic and religious minorities.
He said that Afghan refugees were closely following these negotiations, adding, "They are impatiently waiting for the negotiations to bear fruit and return back to their motherland. They are restive to reconstruct their country and witness the growth and rise of their children in their own land.”
