November 25, 2017

TEHRAN – Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has voiced concerns over the future of Afghanistan, saying the country needs to encourage popular forces alongside the army to launch an effective fight against terrorism, Mehr news agency reported.

Larijani made the remarks in a meeting with his Afghan counterpart Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi on Thursday on the sidelines of the Asian Parliamentary Assembly (APA) in Istanbul.

“The situation in the region warns [us] that some difficulties may plague Afghanistan, therefore we are seeking to establish security in this country,” Larijani said.
