Iranian meddling in Herat condemned
HERAT CITY (PAN): Representatives of civil society organisations in western Herat province on Thursday condemned the interference of Iranian intelligence in Afghanistan’s internal affairs, officials said.
Residents 15 districts of the province accused the Iranian spy service of meddling in Herat, Farah, Badghis and Nimroz provinces.
Iran was fomenting insecurity in the border areas in a bid to impede the Salma Dam in Herat and Kamal Khan dam in Farah, civil society representative Ghulam Hassan Majrooh told Pajhwok Afghan News.
Head of Commission of Political Parties Abdul Qahar Kamil said Iran’s intrusion in the provinces was facilitated by its consulate in Herat, where some Afghan lawmakers and officials enforce Tehran’s decisions.
There were many Iranian agents who travelled to the neighbouring country on secret visas, but the government did not prevent them, he alleged.
Governor Fazlullah Wahidi said they had been informed of Iran’s interference in the affairs of Afghanistan, but they had no concrete evidence.
