Mohammd Jan Khedr Kheyl, the head of the Taliban Immigration Ministry’s Department of Internal Inspections, led the visiting delegation.
Iran has long been hosting millions of Afghans who have fled insecurity, war and violence in their homeland. It is estimated that over four million Afghan nationals are living in Iran.
The UN has, on numerous occasions, praised the Islamic Republic for hosting Afghan refugees despite all the tough economic sanctions imposed by the US on the Iranian nation.
Iran has repeatedly complained about a failure on the part of the international community to provide Tehran with assistance in its efforts to host Afghan nationals.
The influx of refugees has seen a rise since the Taliban’s rise to power following Washington’s humiliating military withdrawal from the country in 2021.
