KABUL: The Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, Mullah Abdul Ghani Beradar Akhund, in a meeting with Hassan Kazemi Qomi, Islamic Republic of Iran’s ambassador to Kabul and Special Representative of that country’s President, discussed enhancing political, economic, commercial, and transit ties between the two countries, his office said in a statement the other day. The meeting was attended by the Acting Minister of Water and Energy, Mullah Abdul Latif Mansoor, the Acting Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock, Mawlavi Ataullah Omari, the Acting Minister of Information and Culture, Mullah Khairullah Khairkhwa, and Afghanistan’s Ambassador to Tehran, Mawlavi Fazl Mohammad Haqqani, the statement said. The meeting discussed several issues including bolstering political, economic, commercial, and transit ties between the two nations, as well as enhancing bilateral cooperation across various sectors, the statement further said. Stressing the importance of collaborative efforts to further strengthen bilateral ties between the two neighboring countries, Beradar Akhund said: “Thanks to the blessings of Allah Almighty, the region experienced heavy rainfall. Consequently, after enduring several years of drought, the water of the Helmand River has now reached Nimruz province and Sistan in Iran,” the statement quoted Beradar as saying. He stated that the development is expected to alleviate the challenges faced by the local populace and called for enhanced transit facilities for Afghan goods destined for European countries through Iran, citing it as an essential measure to elevate transit and trade levels between both nations. The deputy PM also raised concerns about Afghan refugees residing in Iran, urging the Iranian authorities not to forcefully repatriate them and advocating for improved coordination between both nations in the field.
