Iran is infuriated by reports of Pakistani planes attacking Panjshir. A spokesman for Iran’s foreign ministry says foreign interference in the Panjshir war should be investigated and Iran is looking into the matter.
“The Panjshir report is worrying and we strongly condemn last night’s attacks,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzada told a news conference.
Khatibzada said, “We are saddened by the martyrdom of the Afghan leaders. Foreign interference must be investigated and we are investigating the matter. The history of Afghanistan has proved that direct and indirect interference in Afghanistan’s affairs is the defeat of the invading forces.” There is nothing more than this. Afghans want independence and any foreign interference in Afghanistan’s affairs is condemnable.”
A spokesman for Iran’s foreign ministry said the Taliban must live up to their promises. According to him, the news of the siege on the people of Panjshir is worrying and the principles of human rights should be implemented in Afghanistan and Panjshir.
Saeed Khatibzada said that the Panjshir issue can be resolved through political means and that the blockade of Panjshir, cutting off water and electricity to the people is unacceptable to the international community and human rights. He said the Panjshir issue should be resolved through dialogue with all Afghan leaders and it should not end with the killing of the brothers.
A spokesman for Iran’s foreign ministry said the only solution to the Afghan problem could be found through intra-Afghan dialogue. He stressed that Iran was closely monitoring the situation in Afghanistan and Panjshir and that the Red Line should be considered in this regard.
The Taliban has announced that it has taken complete control of Panjshir. However, the Resistance Front led by Ahmed Masood has denied the allegations. Some sources say that Pakistani planes attacked Panjshir last night.
