Afghanistan fears violence in region after Soleimani’s killing

Afghanistan has expressed concern over a possible increase in violence in the region after the killing of an Iranian general in Iraq on Friday, the government said in a statement.

Afghanistan called on its neighbour Iran and the United States, its strategic partner, to prevent conflict escalations.

“Today, during talks with the US Secretary of State, I once again emphasized that Afghan soil must not be used against a third country or in regional conflicts,” Afghan President Ashraf Ghani tweeted on Friday evening after a phone call with Mike Pompeo.
