On the evening of December 1, a shootout between Iranian troops and Afghan Taliban took place on the Iranian border.
AFP reports this.
“There was a clash between Iranian border guards and the Taliban over misunderstandings on the border near the Afghan province of Nimroz,” Tasnim reports.
Iran, as you know, does not recognize the Taliban, who seized power in Afghanistan. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Said Khatibzadeh said the incident was caused by a “border dispute between residents” district.
& quot; The situation is resolved. The shooting stopped after negotiations between the border guards of the two countries & quot ;, & ndash; he said.
