"We have no information or records on shipment of night-observation equipments from Iran, but we are faced with a situation where Iran has provided a certain amount of explosives, weapons and protective equipment to the Taliban." Such incidents have occurred in the western provinces of Afghanistan, "the general said.
According to him, "there is no need to say that the U.S. is taking all possible measures and efforts to prevent and seize weapons and explosives in Afghanistan that was sent by any country, including Iran through strengthening the border."
