Iran said on Wednesday that no clashes have taken place with Taliban forces at the Iran-Afghanistan borders.
Iranian Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi rejected claims over security incidents and clashes between the Iranian border guards and Taliban forces, Mehr news agency reported.
“No clashes erupted between Iranian forces and the Taliban on the country’s borders; What happened was only a misunderstanding.”
The Taliban thought that some border areas should be under their control, Vahidi said, adding that Iranian border guards could justify that they are wrong.
The presence of the Taliban armed forces in border areas increased the consciousness of Iranian forces but no clashes have taken place, the Iranian minister stressed.
