IEA urge Massoud, Khan to return home, assure them they will be safe

An Afghan delegation led by Acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi met with Ahmad Massoud, leader of the Afghan Resistance Front, and Ismail Khan, a senior member of Jamiat-e-Islami party, in Tehran on Monday.

Speaking to reporters, Muttaqi stated: “Yes, we met with Ahmad Massoud, Commander Ismail Khan, and other Afghans. We assured all of them that they can come back and live in Afghanistan in safety.”

“This is the home of all of us. We don’t create any insecurity or other issues, everyone is free to return to their country and live in their homeland,” Muttaqi said.

Muttaqi also met with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Sunday and discussed trade and diplomatic relations.

This was the first such visit by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) delegation since the collapse of the former Afghan government in mid-August.
