Regional countries could not overcome challenges without Iran's coop.

TEHRAN, Jan. 01 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said all countries in the world in practice came to the conclusion that regional countries could not have resolved enduring challenges without Iran's help.

Ghasemi made the remarks in an interview with Mehr News correspondent on Tuesday. 

Regarding Iran's role and measures in the fight against terrorist groups and establishing peace, stability and security in the region, Ghasemi said the Islamic Republic of Iran has been described as a powerful country that, recently and over the past decades, has gone through two phenomena deemed ominous, i.e. Iraqi murderous dictator Saddam's imposed war against Iran and terrorism.

"Iran has always fallen victim to terrorism, and fully understands the impacts of war and terrorism," he noted.

Iran has been struggling to fight extremist and terrorist groups since they established centers to destroy peace and stability in the region; since the beginning of the crisis, including in Syria and Iraq, many countries had misconception about current developments in the region, due to their ignorance or misinformation, but Iran, given its precious experiences, had a precise prediction of the impacts and consequences of these crises, the sponsors of terrorist groups and their objectives, Ghasemi added.

We realized that many countries, over the past five or six years, had changed their viewpoints on the issue of terrorism and the developments in Syria and Iraq; they realized that their previous positions were due to their lack of understanding as for this kind of extremism and terrorism and their sponsors; their current behavior is important and they should not be blamed for their previous mistakes, he said.
