Iran has resumed commercial flights to Afghanistan that had been halted after the Taliban assumed power, news agencies reported.
The semiofficial Fars news agency reported that a charter return flight transported passengers from Tehran to Kabul.
It said a second flight from northeastern city of Mashhad left for Kabul, too.
The flights were from the Mahan Air Airbus fleet. Iran stopped flights to Afghanistan in mid-August.
Tehran has remained a critic of the Taliban and has routinely urged the formation of a government representing all Afghan groups.
Iran hosts some 800,000 registered Afghan refugees and more than two million undocumented Afghans live in the country over the past four decades.
