Paris attacks justify Iran, Russia concerns over terrorism

TEHRAN, Nov. 19 (MNA) – Iranian Vice President Jahangiri met with visiting Russian Deputy PM Rogozin on Wednesday in Tehran.     

The occurrence of terrorist attacks in Lebanon, France and Sinai Peninsula proved the righteousness of the stance taken by Iran and Russia, said Es’hagh Jahangiri, Iran's First Vice-President, in his meeting with visiting Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Rogozin in Tehran on Wednesday.

The official made the remarks referring to the cooperation between Tehran and Moscow in warring terrorism in Syria and Iraq, despite all the supports provided for the ISIL by some other regional and cross-regional countries.

Now the international community is more conscious of the growing threat of terrorism for the whole world, highlighted Jahangiri in an indirect reference to the belief that terrorism in Syria is just a regional issue.

The spread of terrorism and extremism endangers the security of the whole world, as now the Westerners are entangled with the consequences of it, asserted Iranian official.

He held that the recent events demonstrated the borderless nature of terrorism which demands a global cooperation in fighting against it.

Referring to upcoming travel of Russian President Putin to Tehran to attend the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), the official evaluated the Tehran-Moscow relations with bright prospects and voiced hope that the ranking officials of both sides clinch good results at the end of the visit.

Russia played a positive role in the course of Iran-Sextet talks and we expect to have more cooperation with Russians in post-sanctions era as we kept the ties under the sanctions, affirmed Jahangiri.

The official voiced government’s full support for all the agreement reached in the joint commission of Iran and Russia.

The Russian official, for his part, expressed hope for good results out of the slated meetings of President Putin with Iran’s Leader Ayatollah Khamenei and President Rouhani.

More development is expected in bilateral cooperation as the upcoming meetings hoped to bolster the ties, said Rogozin.

Russia is ready to develop scientific and technological relations with Iran as the country’s scientists and experts have made great steps of progress over the past years despite the pressing sanctions against Iran, he said.

Commenting on the latest developments of the Middle East, Rogozin vehemently criticized the Westerners for imposing sanctions upon crisis stricken nations of the region.
