Iranian Speaker Requests Muslims to Stand United in War on Terrorism
During the meeting which was held on the sidelines of the Fourth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament at the UN headquarters in New York on Tuesday, Larijani voiced regret that certain regional and western states, specially the US, have exacerbated insecurity in the Middle-East through their support for the terrorist groups.
“This will trouble the entire region and even those who have created the terrorists and supported them,” he warned.
Elsewhere, Larijani stressed the necessity for the freedom or extradition of the Iranian inmates prisoned in Malaysian jails.
In relevant remarks on Tuesday, Larijani called on the International Inter-Parliamentary Union (IIPU) to adopt an active stance on war on terrorism.
“The International Inter-Parliamentary Union should not play a weak and passive role vis-à-vis the spread of terrorism and extremism as well as a country attacking another country,” Larijani said in a meeting with IIPU Chairman Saber Hussein Chaudhury in New York.
He called for IIPU’s active and constructive role towards important political, social, economic and cultural developments.
