“The Islamic Republic of Iran opposes the presence of any foreign country in the…Middle East and the Persian Gulf,” Dr.Rouhani said in a meeting with visiting Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Tehran on Sunday.
“We are concerned about tensions caused as a result of the presence of foreign powers in the region and believe that all foreign forces should leave the region,” the Iranian president stated, emphasizing that Afghans must be left in charge of establishing security in their country.
“The Administration of Hope and Wisdom places emphasis on developing relations with all of [Iran’s] neighboring countries, particularly the Muslim state of Afghanistan and believes that the welfare and security of the Afghan people will lead to the expansion of regional cooperation,” the Iranian president pointed out.
The Afghan president, for his part, praised the recent deal reached between Iran and the six major world powers on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear energy program.
Pointing to the environmental issues and border interaction between Iran and Afghanistan, Karzai stated that his country remains committed to all bilateral agreements and would soon start negotiations with Iran on a comprehensive pact to strengthen cooperation.
