According to Asefi, compliance with Iran's warnings requires the Taliban to arrest and punish the killers of Iranian diplomats. He also reiterated the necessity of a peaceful end to internal conflict within Afghanistan.
"Iran's foreign ministry is closely following developments in Afghanistan because they have direct impact on stability and security in Iran," Asefi stated.
