Following the clashes between border forces of the Islamic Emirate and security guards of Iran, the foreign ministry of Iran asked Kabul to secure the borders between the two countries.
Nasser Kanani, spokesman of Iran's ministry of foreign affairs, said that securing the borders is important for widening commercial relations between the two countries.
“We understand the situation of Afghanistan, but the Islamic Republic of Iran expects the de facto authorities of Afghanistan to take full responsibility for the security of common borders inside Afghanistan,” he said.
Kabul says it has ordered its border security forces to secure the border areas between two countries.
“Every country wants to have no problems in its borders, and the Islamic Emirate has ordered its officials on all borders to take care of the borders and not to enter into a violent mode with anyone,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate.
Meanwhile, analysts said that the recent clashes between the two countries does not favor of any country.
“There are international border principles, also the principles between the two countries. There is no need for clashes and violence, and these clashes are not in favor of Afghanistan either,” said Aziz Marij, a former diplomat.
"Active Afghan border forces should be formed as soon as possible, and no terrorist group should be allowed to use Afghan soil against other countries,” said Sarwar Niazi, a military expert.
According to local sources in Nimroz province, a temporary clash occurred between the border forces of the Islamic Emirate and the Iranian border guards on Tuesday.
