India, Iran feel Afghanistan would not go backwards

New Delhi: Iran and India officials believe that the Islamic Emirate used by Taliban in their five-year long rule on Afghanistan would be impossible.

The countries believe Afghanistan will not move backwards.

“We need to put our differences aside and focus on our commons including the reality that the Islamic Emirate is an existential threat against Pakistan and a national security threat for Iran and India,” Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, was quoted as saying by Afghanistan Times.

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said New Delhi was not Pakistan’s rival in Afghanistan.

“This is an illusion to think that what India does in Afghanistan indirectly targets Pakistan. These words harm India’s efforts in Afghanistan,” Jaishankar was quoted as saying by Afghanistan Times.
