Iran stirring anti American sentiments in Afghanistan ahead of troop pullout

Kabul, Thu, 05 Jan 2012 ANI

Kabul, Jan 05(ANI): Iran is trying its best to spread anti American feelings in Afghanistan due to the fear of the US troops staying in Afghanistan beyond 2014.


Iran has taken belligerent steps to convince the Afghan leaders that any long-term partnership with the US can have more negative connotations than the positive ones.


Iranian endeavors to propagate their anti American agenda in Kabul include giving financial support to politicians and media firms in Afghanistan as well as maintaining healthy relations with the Taliban.


They are also planning to extend cultural relations with their eastern neighbor, The Washington Post reports.


Iran's policies in Afghanistan are synonymous with their strategy in Iraq where they tried to influence the Iraqi leaders for not allowing the Americans even a small military presence beyond 2011. They even tried to promote insurgency in Iraq.


Iran has been long bothered due to the presence of the American military in its eastern as well as western borders from the last decade and they consider it as a big threat to their nuclear program.


Their other fear is that if in future a war between the US and Iran transpires then the presence of American bases on its eastern and western borders can give the US a big strategic advantage. (ANI)
