Iran increases support for Taliban

Iran Focus

London, 24 May - Iran is increasing its support for the Taliban in retaliation for the US withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal, according to Afghan officials, which means that Kabul will now investigate Iran’s Taliban links.

The mullahs directly supported a Taliban attack on Farah, which lies on the Iran-Afghanistan border, last week. Taliban members, who were trained and armed in Iran, crossed over into Farah to kill hundreds of people, according to Farid Bakhtawar, the head of the provincial council of Farah.

London, 10 Mar - The Iranian Regime is the number one sponsor of terrorism in the world, regardless of religious differences, so it only makes sense that they are supporting the Taliban in Afghanistan, while also maintaining ties with the Afghan government.

Iran has a long history of meddling in the Afghan state, from recruiting its people and refugees into the Fatemiyoun Brigade, a proxy force of the Iranian Regime that fights in Syria, to making agreements with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to develop the Chabahar port on Iran's Arabian Sea coast.

London, 17 Aug - The Taliban wrote an open letter to Donald Trump advising him against sending more troops into Afghanistan would be self-destructive as the military situation is "far worse than [he] realizes".

A senior Taliban official told Reuters that they had chosen to directly address Trump on Tuesday to coincide with the White House debates on American policy towards Afghanistan.

In the letter to Trump, the Taliban wrote: "Previous experiences have shown that sending more troops to Afghanistan will not result in anything other than the further destruction of American military and economic might.”

London, 5 Dec - Recent comments from an Afghan Shiite leader that were complimentary to the Iranian and Syrian regimes are likely to attract regional sectarian rivalries to Afghanistan and incite further violence, according to analysts.

Deputy Afghan Chief Executive Mohammad Mohaqeq, a leader of the country's Shiite minority, told an international summit of scholars from Muslim nations in Iran: "I thank all the warriors who cooperated in these wars from Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other parts of the world."

He was talking specifically about the war in Syria where the Iranian Regime helped to prop up the Bashar al-Assad dictatorship by sending in their Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Lebanese proxy group Hezbollah, and thousands of other fighters from across the Middle East.

London, 6 Aug - US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said that Iran is trying to destabilise its neighbour Afghanistan. Iran has been destabilising many countries in the region and it now seems that Afghanistan is on its list.

Tillerson confirmed that the US was collaborating with its allies in the Middle East to curb the Islamic Republic’s expansionist efforts that are destabilising Syria, Iraq and Yemen, among others.
