AAN’s Obaid Ali is quoted here on Iran’s role in Afghanistan:

Obaid Ali, an analyst for the Kabul-based Afghanistan Analysts Network, said Washington hopes the long-term agreement will signal to Iran that it should not attempt to destabilize Afghanistan, its neighbor to the east.

“The Saudis and Pakistanis are pressuring the U.S. to ensure that Iran doesn’t make inroads into Afghanistan,” Ali said.
