September 5, 2018

TEHRAN – Mohammad Asif Rahimi, the governor of Herat, on Tuesday praised Iran’s kind hospitality to the Afghan refugees over the past forty years, saying Iran and Afghanistan enjoy friendly relations.

“When the people of Afghanistan were displaced from their country, only four countries, including the Islamic Republic of Iran and Pakistan, let the distressed people in,” IRNA quoted Rahimi as saying.

He further said the people and government of Iran “have spared no efforts in supporting the Afghan refugees despite their own problems.” He added, “Such humanitarian, godly move is honorable.”
