In a tweet on Wednesday,  Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote, “For all their talk of democracy & War on Terror, events in Afghanistan & statements by US & NATO officials prove: They invaded & occupied Afghanistan & elsewhere ONLY to pursue their own interests—but couldn’t even achieve that.”

“US/NATO now have clear obligation to compensate,” he added.

Meanwhile, in a tweet on Sunday night, Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif welcomed the establishment of a Coordination Council by Afghan leaders. “Violence & war—like occupation—never solve problems. Iran welcomes the announcement by @KarzaiH on forming a Coordination Council by Afghan leaders.”

He also stressed that Iran is ready to continue its efforts for the spread of peace in Afghanistan.
