Addressing the opening session of the two-day conference, Iran's Ambassador to Romania Hamid Moayyer said that the spread of terrorism in the Middle East is currently the huge scourge of the region.

He said that the main reason behind the evil phenomenon is instrumental use of terrorism by certain powers to advance their policies in the Middle East and subsequently across the world.

Emergence of the Takfiri groups and spread of terrorist acts across the globe, especially in the Middle East and North Africa, is the outcome of deceptive acts by the arrogant powers, said the ambassador.
