The Taliban has assured embassies and staff that there is no danger from their side.
The Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations stated that another 67 children, who were being smuggled by human traffickers and migrants out of the country through the border areas between Iran and Afghanistan, were detained by Iranian border guards and handed over to Afghan security forces.
The Taliban have received men, weapons and explosives but also direction from across our southern frontiers, which is Pakistan, said Ahmad Shuja Jamal, head of international affairs at Afghanistan's National Security Council.
Apart from the citizens of Zaranj, Afghan government security forces also fled to Iran along with their armoured and non-armoured vehicles, but the Afghan Defence Ministry denied this.
Amid intense fighting with the Afghan security forces, the Taliban on Sunday gained ground in the two key cities of Sari Pul and Kunduz, according to officials.
