He pointed to the other humanitarian disasters taking place in Syria and Iraq, saying "we discussed the humanitarian issues in these countries and the cooperation to control the dimensions of regional crises," adding, "Iran has been dealing with critical issues in the region for years and has played an important role in managing the crises and urging other countries to help solve prevailing problems."
"Humanitarian dimension of the regional crises are important for Islamic Republic from humane, Islamic and moral points of view; I stressed the complicated nature of regional crises, hoever, the first issue to focus on is the security to prevent the spread of terrorism and extremism," Jaberi Ansari underlined.
He continued "the other important issue is the political dimension, which is related to demands for political reforms in some regional states.
