When the avarice nature of a group of terrorists and closed-minded people have targeted peace and security of world nations any move to confront such an approach will be admirable, Rafsanjani said.

He made the remarks in a message to the International Conference on Peace in Tehran on Wednesday.

He criticized regional conflicts in parts of the world and the Middle East, specially in Syria, and said all people are waiting for restoration of peace and tranquility to the globe.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes.

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.

In October 2011, calm was almost restored in the Arab state after President Bashar al-Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies sought hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots to topple President al-Assad, who is well known in the world for his anti-Israeli stances.
