Iran and Tajikistan seek peaceful solution to conflict

Iran and Tajikistan both want to see a peaceful solution to the conflict in Afghanistan, Tajik President Emomali Rakhmonov said on Wednesday at the end of a two-day visit to the Iranian capital, Tehran. “We have discussed with [Iranian] President Mohammad Khatami ways of achieving the same peaceful solution in Afghanistan,” Agence France Presse (AFP) quoted Rakhmonov as saying. Wednesday’s meeting follows a trip to the Tajik capital Dushanbe by Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazi at the end of August, where talks focused on the situation in Afghanistan, Friday’s report said. The two men held talks on a number of matters, including political and economic cooperation as well as the ongoing civil war in Afghanistan, which borders both their countries.
