Shia-Sunni amity in Afghanistan to foil plots: Expediency Council chief

November 27, 2017

TEHRAN – Friendship between the Shia and Sunni communities in Afghanistan will lay waste the plots of the enemies of Islam, the chairman of Iran’s Expediency Council said on Monday.

Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi made the remarks in a meeting with the visiting Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Afghanistan Mohammad Mohaghegh, who has traveled to Iran to attend International Conference on Followers of Ahl al-Bayt.

He pointed out that one of the greatest threats in Afghanistan is the U.S. influence which plans to carry out dire scenarios against Afghanistan and other neighboring countries.

Earlier the day, Mohaghegh met Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at the site of Iran’s Foreign Ministry.

During the meeting, the two sides discussed expansion of relations and cooperation. The need for more cooperation in combating terrorist groups and expediting the follow-up of issues in the quintuple committees of Iran and Afghanistan were other topics discussed at the meeting.
