Iran strongly reacts against the statement of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
Iran says Washington is trying to disrupt security in the region.
"Unfortunately, our experience in the region shows that statements made by the United States are based on corrupt reports and that's how they started wars in Afghanistan and in Iraq, on this basis.
In the Iraq war, we observed how they announced it was based on a corrupt lie and they (the US) achieved nothing. Unfortunately, the US style and the style of the current president of the US (Donald Trump) has had no achievements and only disturbs peace in the region and in the world,” said Ali Rabiei, Iranian government spokesman.
US optimism about the peace deal has risen as the United States and the Taliban reach an agreement after 18 months, but it is not yet clear how long it will take to reach an agreement in the Afghans talks.
