Rouhani Urges End of Foreign Intervention, Terrorism in Region

Politics - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a meeting with new Iraqi Ambassador to Tehran Rajih al-Mussawi underlined the need for putting an end to foreign interference and terrorism in the region.

"Without doubt, establishment of peace and tranquility in Iraq is equal to the establishment of security and serenity in Iran,'" President Rouhani said, underlining the need for uprooting terrorism and presence of foreign troops in the region.

The Iranian president said that Tehran attaches great importance to the expansion of relations with Baghdad, and added, "Iran and Iraq enjoy vast untapped potentials for expansion of relations in economic, cultural, and political arenas."

'We wish victory for the Iraqi nation in its fight against terrorism and hope that all Iraqi ethnic groups come to live under one flag in peace and tranquility," he added.

Al-Mussawi, for his part, said that Iran is his second homeland, and stated that the people of Iraq have felt the kindness and friendship of Iranians, specially in their fight against terrorism in recent years.

In relevant remarks on Wednesday, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani described terrorism and extremism as the most dangerous threats posed to the entire world, and called for collective efforts by all countries to uproot terrorist groups in the region.

Speaking in a meeting with French Parliament Vice-Speaker Laurence Dumont on the sidelines of the 4th World Conference of Speakers of Parliaments in New York, sponsored by the Geneva-based Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), Larijani underlined that fighting terrorism is important for both Iran and France because terrorism will not be limited to the Middle East and it is a global threat.
