KABUL (Pajhwok): Deputy Prime Minister for Political Affairs Maulvi Abdul Kabir has asked neighbouring countries to exercise tolerance and patience on the issue of deporting Afghan refugees.

He issued the call at a meeting with Iranian Special Representative and Ambassador Hassan Kazemi Qomi here on Friday, the Presidential Palace said in a statement.

The statement quoted Qomi as saying: “Recent visits by foreign delegations to Kabul indicate the political progress made by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) and its positive interaction with world.”

He pledged cooperation with Afghanistan in areas of health, higher education, water management, environmental protection and economic development.

He added the Chabahar port’s operation could create good opportunities both for Afghanistan and Iran. But some elements were trying to damage relations between Kabul and Tehran.

A joint meeting of Afghan and Iranian scholars could pave the way for greater cooperation between the two countries, the ambassador believed.

The deputy premier criticised deadly Israeli attacks in the region, saying Kabul did not support conflict and the only solution was the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza.

He said the interim government desired enhanced political, economic and cultural relations with Iran. He also appreciated Iran for hosting Afghan refugees.

Kabir asked neighbouring countries to take tolerance and patience measures in deportation of Afghan refugees.

He also urged Iranian entrepreneurs to invest in Afghanistan. The IEA remained committed to working together with neighbours for the region’s stability and development.
