Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi has welcomed the announcement by Taliban of a three-day ceasefire on the occasion of Eid al-Adha, describing it as a positive step towards the achievement of peace and stability in Afghanistan.

In a statement on Wednesday, Mousavi offered congratulations to the Muslim brothers and sisters in Afghanistan on the Great Eid al-Adha, and expressed hope that the move by Taliban will help provide the grounds required for an agreement in Afghanistan.

"We hope that we will soon witness the beginning of intra-Afghan dialogue centered on the Afghan government and with the participation of all political groups, including the Taliban, with the aim of finding a peaceful solution and reaching a mutually acceptable agreement for peace based on the Constitution and democratic structures in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan," the spokesman noted.

He finally reaffirmed Iran’s preparedness to contribute to promotion of the Afghan-Afghan dialogue at the request of the parties involved.
