Iran “strongly” criticized the Taliban’s military operation against rogue fighters in Afghanistan’s Panjshir Valley on Monday, as the Islamist group assumed control of the region. “The news from Panjshir is truly concerning,” said Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman, Saeed Khatibzadeh. “The assault is categorically criticized.”

The Taliban declared victory in the mountainous Panjshir area on Monday, with a spokesman revealing that “our country is completely taken out of the political mess of war,” three weeks after the Islamists took control of the capital. “On the issue of Panjshir, I have demanded on resolving it through dialogue in the presence of all Afghan elders,” Khatibzadeh said. “The Taliban must equally respect their commitments and obligations under international law”.
