US intelligence acknowledges Iran not after destabilizing Afghanistan despite Pompeoís claims


In this file photo taken on April 5, 2020, a man wearing a facemask as a precautionary measure against the COVID-19 novel coronavirus walks past a wall painted with images of US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad (L) and Taliban co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar (R), in Kabul.

The US intelligence agency has acknowledged that Iran is not seeking to destabilize Afghanistan where the US heís engaged in an alleged peace process.

The US military intelligence announcement runs counter to previous remarks by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, The National Interest reported.

"Iranís strategic objectives relating to Afghanistan continue to be maintaining a stable Afghan central government and security along Iranís eastern border," the Lead Inspector General wrote. "Iranís objectives also include protecting Shia populations, eliminating [Daesh in Central Asia], opposing the US presence in the region, and securing Iranian economic interests."

Back in January the US hawkish secretary of state had claimed that Iran is "actively working to undermine the peace process."

Tehran has welcomed the withdrawal of US forces from its neighboring country, maintaining that Washington is in no position to make decisions for the future of Afghanistan.

The US reached a deal with the Taliban terrorist group on February 28, under which the Taliban agreed to halt attacks in return for Washingtonís phased withdrawal of forces from Afghanistan and a prisoner exchange with the government in Kabul.

The agreement was supposed to lay the groundwork for a peace process in the war-ravaged country.

The United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan in October 2001 as part of the so-called war on terror. While the invasion ended the Talibanís rule in the country, it has failed to eliminate the militant group.
