Iran’s foreign ministry said on Saturday it summoned Afghanistan’s ambassador over recent “offensive moves” made against its diplomatic missions in the neighboring country.

In a statement, the ministry said that the offensive moves had come from a small group of certain political movements with a record of opposition to Iran and to the good neighbourliness between the two countries.

The groups recently made a series of insulting moves and violated the Iran’s Embassy and other missions in Afghanistan under the pretext that a number of Afghan nationals who had plans for illegal entry into Iran or had entered Iran illegally with the help of traffickers have died, the statement said.

In the Saturday meeting in Tehran, Director General of West Asia of the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed concern about the impact of the “wrong measures” by that small group on the neighbourly relations between Iran and Afghanistan.
