TEHRAN, Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- Amir Khan Muttaqi, acting foreign minister of the newly-formed government of Afghanistan, arrived in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Saturday for talks on a host of issues.

Muttaqi, who is heading a high-ranking delegation, will hold talks with Iranian officials on political, economic and transit issues, as well as on the Afghan refugees in Iran, Tehran Times daily reported.

Iran has urged the Taliban to form an inclusive government as a means for recognition.

"What is most emphasized in Afghanistan by Iran and neighboring countries is the formation of an inclusive government that reflects the ethnic and demographic diversity of Afghanistan," said Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh in his latest press conference.

"The Iranian government has not yet recognized the Taliban government, but it will hand over the Afghan embassy in Tehran to the Taliban to look after the affairs of Afghan citizens in Iran," it said. Enditem
