Commenting on Iran’s role in Afghanistan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo argued that “Iran has refused to join the regional and international consensus for peace and is, in fact, today actively working to undermine the peace process by continuing its long global efforts to support militant groups there”. He went on to contend that Iran “has a relationship with the Taliban and related groups, such as the Haqqanis, the Tora Bora, and the Mullah Dadullah group”, adding that “the Taliban’s entanglement in Iran’s dirty work will only harm the Afghanistan peace process”.
