Close ties between Iran and India may guarantee stability, safety and development of the region, Iranian president Mohammad Khatami reported.
At a meeting with Indian Foreign Minister Yashwant Sinha, Khatami noted Iran-Indian relations are not meant to hurt interests of any country.
Khatami appealed to the countries in the region to strive for a normalisation of the atmosphere and security in Afghanistan, excluding the presence of observers from other regions.
Sinha emphasised New Delhi's interest in widening cooperation with Tehran on various issues.
Some people are even concerned that China may misread the AUKUS as F**KUS
