Dr.Ahmadinejad in a meeting with Afghan president:
US aims behind Afghan security pact will fail
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the US is doomed to fail in its objectives behind the recently sealed Strategic Partnership Agreement with Afghanistan.
President Ahmadinejad made the remark at a Thursday meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai on the sidelines of the 12th summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Beijing, China.
President Ahmadinejad pointed out that the US will fail in all its efforts to seize control of the world.
“One of the manifestations of such efforts is the signing of the security agreement with Afghanistan which, I am sure, will bring no benefits to the Americans and they will not achieve their objectives behind the agreement,” president Ahmadinejad pointed out.
Dr.Ahmadinejad pointed out, “Iran only seeks the establishment of security, peace and prosperity for the people of Afghanistan,” adding that the two countries will always stand by each other under any circumstances.
He made reference to the decade-long US-led war in Afghanistan and noted, “The Americans negotiate with the Taliban behind the scenes, but in an attempt to keep up appearances, they have staged a sham war with the Taliban, which mainly victimizes the innocent people and women and children.”
The Afghan president, for his part, praised Iran's support for the people of Afghanistan and described the bilateral ties as “unique.”
Karzai reiterated that nothing can create a rift among the two nations and assured that the Afghan nation and government will never allow factors such as the security agreement with the US to pose hazards to the interests of the Islamic Republic.
