Iranian envoy to UN condemns certain states’ supports for terrorism

Iran’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Mohammad Khazaei Tuesday complained that most of the clashes, disputes and crises in the Middle-East in recent years have been started, fueled and worsened by certain world powers.

The Iranian envoy describe the Syrian crisis and the recent terrorist attacks on the Iranian border guards the Southeaster Sistan and Balouchestan province, as the prime examples of such measures by the certain world powers.

“(foreign-backed) Terrorist groups dispatch some of their members from different parts of the world to Syria to fight the government of (President) Bashar al-Assad,” Khazaei added.

Earlier this month, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan voiced deep concern over the continued spread of terrorism and extremism in the region.

Criticizing the “inhuman and dangerous phenomenon of Takfiri terrorism” in the region, the Iranian minister said that they (the extremists) are to “spread terrorism from Syria to Iraq”.

On Tuesday, Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi criticized some regional countries for supporting extremist and terrorist groups in the region and warned that such measures only benefit Israel.

Late in October, Iran's First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri laid emphasis on the negative impacts of extremist thoughts for the entire Muslim world, and called for Muslims' vigilance against such deviations.

He voiced Iran’s readiness to help resolve problems facing the Islamic Ummah, specially in the sensitive and strategic region of the Middle-East.
