Afghanistan

Volume 712: debated on Tuesday 7 July 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of Iranian military involvement in Afghanistan. [HL4611]

There is evidence that elements of the Iranian regime provide arms and funding to the Taliban and other illegal armed groups in Afghanistan. This is contrary to the Iranian Government’s own claims to want security and stability in the region and we will continue to raise this with the Iranian Government at appropriate opportunities.
