Tehran to Fence 'Vulnerable Areas' on the Afghanistan Border

Tehran has once again emphasized border fencing along the Iran-Afghanistan border.

Sardar Qasem Rezaei, the Deputy Police Chief of Iran, stated that only vulnerable points along the Iran-Afghanistan border will be fenced.

"Physical barriers will only be created in vulnerable areas. In addition, our border guards and residents also participate in securing the border," said Qasem Rezaei.

The Islamic Emirate welcomed the border closure by Iran and stated that this will be coordinated with Afghanistan.

Hamdullah Fetrat, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate, pledged that all borders are under the control of the Islamic Emirate's forces and Afghanistan's soil poses no threat to any country.

"Afghanistan's security and defense forces control all the geography and border lines of the country, and the fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran wants to fence in the border and vulnerable points is a good action and this will be done in coordination with the Islamic Emirate," he added.

Some military and political experts believe that there is currently no need for fencing between Afghanistan and Iran.

Kamran Aman, a military analyst, told TOLOnews: "The condition of the border is such that whenever the opposite side wants to build a fence or a high wall or take any measure, it must have the agreement of the neighboring country."

Mohammad Hassan Haqyar, a political analyst, said: "The border between Iran and Afghanistan is secure due to the efforts of the Islamic Emirate, and there is no need for fencing at this border."

This comes as Iranian security officials had previously stated that they plan to block their borders to combat the entry of drug traffickers and armed terrorist groups into the country.
