A meeting was held in Herat on Tuesday between Afghan officials and Iranian authorities on a number of trade and cross-border issues.

Hamidullah Motawakel, the Herat governor’s spokesperson, says this was the first such meeting and that both sides are trying to resolve the respective problems.

He said the delegations were split in two, and each group looked at problems spanning five sectors – railway, agriculture, border facilities, customs and the establishment of a common economic zone.

The delegations of both sides included officials from various government departments of Herat, officials of the Chamber of Industries and Mines, Trade and Investment, as well as the deputy governor of Khorasan, Iran, and Iranian businessmen and investors.

This is in addition to the four meetings already held between the joint economic delegation of Herat and Iran under the previous government. However, all issues and agreements were only theoretical and had not been implemented practically.

India considers reports of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) restoring properties to the country’s minority Hindu and Sikh community as “a positive development”, said Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal on Friday.

“If the Taliban administration (IEA) has decided to restore properties to Hindus and Sikhs from Afghanistan who are their nations, of course, it is something which is a positive development. This is how we look at it,” Jaiswal said at a press briefing.

About a month ago, the Ministry of Justice announced that the Land-Grabbing Prevention and Restitution Commission started investigating cases of usurped land belonging to Hindu and Sikh communities across the country.

Sohail Shaheen, head of the political office of the Islamic Emirate in Doha, also recently told the The Hindu newspaper that a commission chaired by the Minister of Justice has been established to return to their owners all properties which had been usurped by warlords during the former regime.

He also drew attention to the recent return of Narender Singh Khalsa, a member of the parliament of Afghanistan that was dissolved with the takeover of the country by the IEA in August 2021.
