Iran Warns against Extremists' Threats to Regional Peace, Tranquility

Politics - An Iranian deputy foreign minister voiced Tehran's concern over the spread of the new wave of extremism and terrorism in the region, particularly in Iraq and Syria, and called on the international bodies to force foreign meddlers to halt backing militancy in the Middle-East

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Friday that taking advantage of extremist terrorists as a political tool for certain countries will inflict irreparable political and security damage and human loss on the region and the international community.

The Iranian official said without any doubt, the actions of Takfiri terrorists in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon are not possible without foreign support.

Amir Abdollahian pointed out that the Takfiri mindset has nothing to do with the pure and real Islam, but it represents a link between the Zionist regime of Israel and the terrorist currents such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

The crisis in Iraq escalated after the ISIL militants took control of Mosul in a lightning advance on June 10, which was followed by the fall of Tikrit, located 140 kilometers (87 miles) Northwest of the capital, Baghdad.

Soldiers of the Iraqi army have been engaged in heavy fighting with the militants on different fronts and have so far been able to push them back in several areas.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has said Saudi Arabia and Qatar are responsible for the security crisis and growing terrorism in his country, denouncing the Al Saud regime as a major supporter of global terrorism.
