The meeting is to be held in the capital Tehran on Saturday, Rasoul Mousavi, an assistant to Iran’s acting Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani, announced on Friday.

It is to be attended by special representatives from the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the People’s Republic of China, and the Russian Federation.

“The meeting’s agenda features consultation among the Iranian, Pakistani, Chinese, and Russian representatives concerning Afghanistan’s future,” added Mousavi.

“The Tehran meeting will serve as a herald of peace, stability, and development for Afghanistan and the region under the auspices of regional cooperation and convergence,” noted the official, who is also the director-general of the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s South Asian Affairs Department.

The group’s first meeting took place in the Afghan capital of Kabul on January 18, hosting special representatives and ambassadors from the regional countries and Afghanistan’s neighbors.

The Taliban stormed back to power in August 2021 after making sweeping advances across the country, which triggered a messy withdrawal by the United States-led foreign forces as well as rapid collapse of the country’s the US-trained security forces.
