#Iran says it has hosted a delegation from #Taliban to discuss possible ways to end hostilities in #Afghanistan.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi told reporters in Tehran on Monday that the extensive meetings between Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi and the group on Sunday were coordinated with the government of Afghanistan.

“Since the Taliban are in control of more than 50 percent of Afghanistan, and given the insecurity, instability and other issues that the country is dealing with, they [the Taliban] were interested in talks with Iran,” Qassemi said.

He said Iran has long borders with Afghanistan and always sought a constructive role to maintain peace in the region.

The Tehran meetings came days after it was confirmed that Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), had traveled to the war-torn country for initial talks.
