TAWDA KHABARE: Taliban Trip to Tehran, Iran`s Role in Peace
As the US recently accused Iran of providing financial and military support to the Taliban in Afghanistan, a Taliban delegation led by Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar went to Iran to discuss the Afghan peace process with Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister.
The Taliban’s trip to Iran comes as efforts have been accelerated to restart the peace process between the Taliban and the US.
Russia has advocated including Iran in the Afghan peace process, but some say it is unclear what role Iran wants if it was included in the process.
