Iran's leader urges regional unity in Afghan visit

Published: 03.27.14, 15:21 / Israel News

In his first visit to Afghanistan as Iran's president, Hassan Rouhani called for regional unity Thursday as regional leaders celebrated the Persian New Year in Kabul.


Rouhani is visiting at a crucial time for Afghanistan, with national elections being held in just over a week and most US and allied troops withdrawing by year's end. With Western influence diminishing in Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Tajikistan and other countries are vying to fill the vacuum. (AP)
