Afghanistan Asks Iran’s Assistance to Train Armed Forces
“Iran can help Afghanistan by training its Armed Forces,” Afghan Defense Ministry Spokesman Dolat Vaziri said in an interview with the Iranian media on Monday.
He urged Iran to provide the Afghan cadets with military scholarship and train them to defend the country.
Vaziri underlined that his country wants increased cooperation with Iran, specially in military fields, and said, “We demand Iran to treat our wounded soldiers who have been injured in the war against terrorists.”
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a telephone conversation with his Afghan counterpart Ashraf Ghani in November voiced his country’s support for eradicating terrorism and establishing peace in Afghanistan.
During the phone talk, the Iranian president said that Tehran is determined to help Kabul to get rid of the terrorist groups and restore stability to that country.
“Sustainable peace and security in Afghanistan is to the benefit of the regional countries, including Iran,” President Rouhani added.
Meantime, he underlined the need for an all-out campaign against narcotics production and trafficking, and called for extensive international cooperation to eradicate the phenomenon.
