Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi

Tehran(IP) - Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman welcomed the agreement between the two winners of the recent Afghan elections and declared Iran's readiness to provide help in the process of Intra-Afghan political dialogues.

Iran Press/Iran news: Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi welcomed the signing of the agreement between Ashraf Ghani, President of the Republic of Afghanistan, and Abdullah Abdullah, Chairman of the Supreme National Reconciliation Council,

Mousavi also stated that the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to assist in the process of Intra-Afghan political dialogues as well as for the continuation of the alignment process of Afghan groups, including the Taliban.

The political crisis caused by the Afghan presidential election, in which the country's election commission declared Ashraf Ghani president on January 20, was not accepted by Abdullah.

On March 9, Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah held simultaneous inauguration ceremonies at the presidential and Sepidar palaces with their supporters, effectively giving Afghanistan two presidents and a parallel government.

Today, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and  Abdullah Abdullah signed a power-sharing deal, ending a bitter months-long feud that plunged the country into a political crisis.

The breakthrough comes as Afghanistan battles a series of crises, including a rapid spread of the deadly coronavirus and surging militant violence that saw dozens killed in brutal attacks last week.
