ImagePARIS (AP) — The top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan says there are signs that some Taliban fighters are training in Iran.

Gen. Stanley McChrystal also says some weapons and ammunition have entered Afghanistan from Iran. But the numbers "are not operationally significant (and) they have not changed the fight."

McChrystal said Friday at France's IHEDN military institute that he has no proof that the Iranian government is channeling fighters or equipment to Afghanistan.

He says he would be concerned if flows increase.

Last month, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates accused Iran of "playing a double game" by nurturing relations with Afghanistan while supporting insurgents to undermine U.S. and NATO troops. Iran denies the allegation.
