ImageTEHRAN, May 21 (UPI) — A deadline should be set for the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says.

The president met Monday with Kai Eide, the United Nations envoy to Afghanistan, the Fars News Agency reported. He promised that Iran would do whatever it can to help Afghanistan become stable.

Ahmadinejad said western countries have "double standards" on Afghanistan.

"Certain foreign states, present in Afghanistan, cooperate both with the government and their enemies," he said, an apparent reference to Pakistan.

One of Afghanistan's most serious problems is its re-emergence as a source of drugs, Ahmandinejad said. He said Iran will do its best to help its neighbor fight drug trafficking.
