Afghanistan at odds with US over Iran issue

Posted by alanmirs on August 6, 2007

WASHINGTON: Afghan President Hamid Karzai, a key US ally, contradicted US assessments of the threat posed by Iran and insisted in an interview aired on Sunday that Tehran played a beneficial role in his region

"So far, Iran has been a helper and a solution," Karzai told a private TV channel on the eve of a visit here on Sunday to meet with President George W Bush for talks on the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan.

"Iran has been a supporter of Afghanistan, in the peace process that we have and the fight against terror, and the fight against narcotics in Afghanistan," said Karzai, who became president with US backing in 2002.
