Ex-Ambassador: Taliban's Absence From Tehran Meeting Shows Regional Interaction Stance

(MENAFN- Khaama Press) Mohammad Reza Bahrami, former Iranian ambassador to Kabul, stated that the Taliban's absence from the Tehran Contact Group meeting reflects their approach to regional interaction.

Bahrami made these remarks on Saturday, June 8, in a message posted on his social media platform X.

He added,“The Taliban's non-participation in the second regional Contact Group meeting in Tehran shows their perspective on the nature and level of regional interaction.”

According to him, parties that believe in simplifying this interaction will continue to experience miscalculations.

This comes as the second Moscow Format meeting, with representatives from Russia, China, Iran, and Pakistan, was held without the Taliban.

This morning, Zakir Jalali, head of the Taliban's third political office, said the group would not participate in the Moscow Format meeting.

He stated that the Taliban expect meetings in Afghanistan to occur through established mechanisms rather than creating new ones.

Additionally, Hassan Kazemi Qomi, Iran's ambassador and special representative for Afghanistan, said at the end of this meeting that developments in Afghanistan could impact neighboring countries and the region.
