On Saturday, the United States and the Taliban signed an agreement aimed at paving the way for a complete withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan, effectively ending what many have described as America's "longest war".

Under the deal, the Taliban will sever ties with al-Qaeda and other terror groups and sit down for peace talks with the Afghan government. In return, Washington will start a phased withdrawal of troops.

The Afghan government did not take part in talks which led to the deal.

Earlier on Sunday, Iran's Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that the pact was an attempt by Washington to justify its illegal presence in Afghanistan.
