Iran urges Afghanistan to direct guards over border security

Iran’s Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi has said that Afghan authorities should direct the country’s border guards to observe security considerations. This follows a brief armed clash between Iran and Afghan forces along the borders.

Vahidi was speaking a day after a number of Taliban border guards shot at Iranian guards in the Zahak region, prompting the Iranians to shoot back.

The Iranian minister stated that the clashes left no fatalities.

He also noted that Afghan authorities should give required directions to their border guards in order to prevent similar incidents in future.

He added that the repetition of such incidents does Afghanistan no favor.
