KABUL (Pajhwok): Iranian President’s Special Envoy Mohammad Ibrahim Taheryan has said that his country supported an Afghan led and owned process, according to a statement on Saturday.

During a meeting with President Ashraf Ghani here, Taheryan reaffirmed Iran’s support to reconciliation process in Afghanistan, a statement from Presidential Palace said.

Both sides discussed promoting Iran and Afghanistan bilateral relationship and Afghan peace and reconciliation process.

The Iranian president’s envoy briefed the president about the Taliban’s delegation visit to Tehran and added his country strived for durable peace and stability in Afghanistan.
