TEHRAN (IANS) — Iran’s deputy envoy to the UN has said the US-led military coalition had failed to make Afghanistan a safer nation, Tasnim news agency reported on Saturday.

The security in Afghanistan has continued to deteriorate since the US invasion in 2001, Eshaq Al-e-Habib was quoted as saying.

More than a decade after the US-led military invasion, Afghanistan, the region and the world are not any safer, he said.

“Building regional partnerships and cooperation, not only in Afghanistan and Central Asia but in all regions around the world, serve as the most appropriate model to reinforce the inseparable nexus between security and development,” he stressed.
