He noted that the ISIL terrorists ignore Islam's concepts and make inexperienced youth to commit un-Islamic and inhumane actions, and said, "The terrorist group's actions in the region have grown due to the differences among Islamic states."

He further cautioned that the interests of all the world nations are threatened by terrorism, illicit drugs, tyranny and arrogance today, implying that a serious global move is need to confront these phenomena and stop their growth across the world.
