Terrorism: Karzai to attend Tehran conference on Fighting Terrorism

IRNA -- Afghan Ambassador to Iran Obeidollah Obeid said on Tuesday that President Hamid Karzai will visit Iran to attend International Conference on Fighting Terrorism in Tehran on June 25-26

The Afghan president is also scheduled to hold talks with senior Iranian officials on the sidelines of the conference.

Afghanistan is currently the hub of terror activities and the presence of the US and its allies in the country under the pretext of fighting terrorism has contributed nothing to uprooting terrorism. Furthermore, it has flamed the evil phenomenon in the country.

According to the Secretariat the conference, some 80 world countries and international organizations have voiced readiness to attend the conference.
