Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Tuesday that relations between Iran and Afghanistan are based on cordial cooperation and common interests and security.

Qassemi’s comments came after the governor of the western Afghan province of Farah, Asif Nang, claimed in an interview with Kabul News TV channel on November 9 that Iran has given houses to Afghan Taliban commanders and provided training facilities for militant groups in some of its cities.

This as Iran has repeatedly emphasized that improving progress and security in Afghanistan is among the Islamic Republic’s core policies.
