An Iranian official has dismissed the anti-Iran remarks made by the US envoy for Afghanistan, saying Tehran favours stability in the neighbouring country.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran supports peace and stability in Afghanistan and stresses the need to establish peace based on the outcome of intra-Afghan talks owned and led by the Afghans,” said Mohammad-Ebrahim Taheri, the special representative of the Iranian foreign minister for Afghan affairs.

“We recommend US officials first carefully review the stances [of Iranian authorities] before expressing their opinions about the viewpoints of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s officials about regional and Afghan issues,” he said.
