Iran And Taliban's Business Agreements

Date: Oct 08, 2021, 12:00

While most countries in the world, including the United States, have made the recognition and establishment of relations with the Taliban conditional on the group's behavior and fulfillment of its obligations, the Islamic Republic of Iran has reportedly reached several economic agreements with the Taliban in various fields.

The Iranian news agency wrote in a report on Tuesday, October 4, that these agreements are in the field of trade, oil and gas, road development and transit, and are to be implemented in 10 days.

According to the report, "to speed up the trade process", the Dogarun-Islam-Qala border is scheduled to be open 24 hours a day. The Islamic Republic of Iran has also agreed with the Taliban to begin the development of "roads in eight Afghan provinces and Herat customs" in coming month.

According to the report, a delegation from the Taliban will travel to Iran to negotiate with the officials of the Ministry of Oil of the Islamic Republic to "solve the problems". Improving the flow of liquefied natural gas from Iran to Afghanistan is another provision of this agreement. IRNA writes that for this purpose, the construction of a "pipeline" from Dogarun to Islam Qala will begin "soon".

Following the developments in Afghanistan and the Taliban's control over the country, Ibrahim Ra'isi said on Monday, August 16th, without naming the Taliban: "The rule of the will of the oppressed people of Afghanistan has always been security-building and stabilizing."
