TEHRAN (FNA)- Afghan Deputy Defense Minister Homayoun Fawzi in a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi assured Tehran that Kabul would never allow anyone to use Afghanistan as a platform for attacking Iran.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran is one of our good friends and we will not allow any threat to Iran from Afghanistan's soil," Fawzi said during the meeting here in Tehran on Tuesday.
