MEHWAR: Iran Envoy Remarks On Taliban Discussed
Iran’s Ambassador to Afghanistan, Mohammad Reza Bahrami, says that Tehran wants a role for the Taliban in Afghanistan’s government, but that role should not be dominant.
Taliban has publicly said that the group is not seeking power and that it wants an equal role for all Afghans in the future government.
“We agree on the participation of the Taliban in power, but we do not agree with a dominant role for them,” Bahrami told TOLOnews. “Our position is very clear. We want to say there is a structure present where the Taliban can participate.”
In this episode of Mehwar, host Sadaf Amiri discusses the topic with Humayun Jarir, member of Hezb-e-Islami party.
