Iran Press/Iran news: In an exclusive interview with Iran Press in Kabul on the sidelines of a visit to Afghan and meeting with senior Afghan officials on Saturday night, Abbas Araghchi stressed the importance of intensive consultations between the two countries saying Iran and Afghanistan are neighbors and share common interests and concerns.

"Afghanistan has been involved in many problems and the Iranian people and government have always stood by the Afghan people and government," he said.

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister said the damage that Afghanistan has suffered in the last 40 years has not been from Iran.

"We hope for a final conclusion on the Comprehensive Strategic Document today," said the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister.

Commenting on some comments on the location of the Afghan peace talks in Doha, Araghchi said that the Afghan peace talks in Doha are negotiations between the Afghans themselves and no country should interfere in the details, and ideally, the talks should be inside Afghanistan and of course, only Afghans should decide in this regard.
