Kanaani said that Iran would continue dialogue with the Taliban interim government in Afghanistan to shore up the security and economic cooperation and offer help to the Afghan people in the country, noting that Afghanistan's security was firstly vital for the country and then for its neighbors including Iran.
He also referred to the first anniversary of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan after 20 years of occupation and stressed that the withdrawal did not mean that the US exculpated, but it must be held accountable more than ever for all the devastations it left in Afghanistan.
The US occupation of Afghanistan for 20 years led the country to the destruction of the infrastructure and massive killings of people.
The American Army invaded Afghanistan in 2001.
Elsewhere Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson said the development of trade relations between Iran and Iraq will be provided more than before.
Kanaani stated that Iran's relationship with all Iraqi parties is continuous and strong.
He noted that Iran is not on the side of any political movement or group.
"We are with all the Iraqi brothers, and the national view and avoiding the factional view is on our agenda," the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
