Iran PressIran news: Ali-Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution and the Secretary-General of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening, emphasized the support of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the great nation of Afghanistan in the path of peace, security, and development.

Speaking on Monday at a webinar on "Afghanistan, Peace and Sustainable Security," Velyati pointed out that the history of Afghanistan has been full of courage and resistance of the people against the colonialists and hegemons from the time of the Red Army attack to the resistance against the US and NATO occupation.

The official added that the people of Afghanistan have always stood against any aggression and extravagance and have defeated the military of the East and the West, which were armed to the teeth.
