Yamamoto in Tehran to review issues about Afghanistan

To discuss the situation in Afghanistan with Iranian and international officials, UN envoy for Afghanistan, Tadamichi Yamamoto arrived in Tehran for two-day visit.

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) announced that the UN envoy for Afghanistan heading a delegation is in Tehran to hold talks with Iranian and international officials.

Earlier during the UNSC session, Yamamoto had urged the Afghan election commissions to address complaints through legal channels.

Iran is recognized as an important country in the Afghan peace process and has repeatedly emphasized the Afghan-led, Afghan-owned peace process.

Before his visit to Iran, Yamamoto also met with Chinese Ambassador to Afghanistan Wang Yu on Sunday and discussed the Afghan peace process with ambassador. 

Chinese Ambassador to Afghanistan Wang Yu said in his twitter account that Afghanistan’s peace and stability is important to regional stability and development. 

“China always supports the “Afghan-led, Afghan-owned” reconciliation process, and is willing to work with the international community to offer more help to the country’s peaceful reconciliation,” Ambassador Wang Yu tweeted.
