Envoy Renews Iran's Continued Support for Afghanistan
Tehran’s Ambassador to Kabul Abolfazl Zohrehvand said Iran will maintain its support for the reconstruction and development process in Afghanistan, specially after the withdrawal of foreign forces from the war-torn country.

“We have been helping Afghans here in different sectors and we will continue to support them after 2014 because the two countries have many things in common. So we will stand alongside the Afghan people and their government,” press tv quoted Zohrevand as saying.

He stated that Tehran will continue to support Afghans in the reconstruction and development of their country.

Zohrevand stressed that peace is possible only if the US and its allies leave Afghanistan.

Iran is one of the most important donors to Afghanistan which has kept its promises to help to the reconstruction of the war-hit country.

Iran has built some roads, power transmission lines, and border stations, among the other infrastructure projects which would better link the two nations.

Iran has also contributed more than $50 million annually to Afghan anti-narcotics efforts in the last several years.
