Bagheri raps US for hypocrisy in countering terrorism

TEHRAN, Feb. 01 (MNA) – The Iranian deputy foreign minister condemned the United States for its unilateralism and exercising double standards in its alleged fight against terrorism.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Ali Bagheri Kani met with the head of the Executive Committee of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO)’s Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure Ruslan Mirzayev in Uzbekistan’s capital Tashkent, a report by the Iranian foreign ministry's website said.

During the meeting, they discussed and exchanged views about ways for effective and efficient interaction.

Bagheri said Iran’s membership in the SCO proves Tehran’s determination for a collective cooperation within the framework of multilateralism.

He added, “At a time when the US unilateralism has failed to establish peace in the world, the only way for human beings is multilateralism, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization has proven effective in confronting terrorism.”

Bagheri noted that drawing a line between “good and bad terrorism” by the US based on Washington’s interests causes insecurity in the world.

Meanwhile, Mirzayev described the three ominous phenomena of terrorism, extremism and separatism as ‘the biggest threats to the world.’

He further said, “The SCO is the only organization that is operationally fighting terrorism.”

Mirzayev termed Iran’s experience in fighting the scourge as valuable and stressed on the importance of exchanging views and cooperation.
