Baharvand and Nab discussed regional issues and cooperation between the two countries.

Nab lauded Iran’s support for the success of the Afghan peace talks.

The two diplomats examined the Comprehensive Iran-Afghanistan Cooperation Agreement, holding the sixth meeting of the Joint Commission on Economic-Trade Cooperation and major bilateral cooperation projects.

In relevant remarks in early May, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman said his country is doing its best to maintain peace and stability in the neighborly and brotherly country of Afghanistan.

“We are concerned about what is happening in Afghanistan, and we have done our best for the peace and stability of Afghanistan,” Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Monday May 3, adding, “We are in contact with the Afghan government and other groups to achieve results.”
