West not resolved to eliminate terrorism: Judiciary chief

Tehran, Aug 22, IRNA – Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli-Larijani said that the West has no determination for annihilating terrorism and uses the evil phenomenon as an instrument to counter against other countries.

Addressing a session of Judiciary’s high-ranking officials on Monday, he said, 'Certain circles in the US believe that Washingto should not destroy Deash because it is the best means for materializing US goals.'

'As long as such beliefs prevail in the world, the current situation will surely persists,' he said.

Referring to recent acts of terror in Europe and Russia, the cleric said that Iran condemns terrorism in all its forms and this is while Europe and the US have divided terrorism into good and bad both in theory and practice.

Lambasting President Donald Trump for linking terror with Islam, Larijani said that an illogical and irrational president like Trump whose racist policies have split his county into two parts is promoting Islamophobia and blames Islam for terrorist attacks.

Such issues reveal his illogicality and idiocy, he went on to say.

A religion which is harbinger of freedom of human beings and has clearly opposed to killing them is today being accused of backing terrorism, he said, noting that such attitudes will prevent uprooting terrorism.

Noting that Iran has fought terrorism both in words and action and has always stood in the frontline of fighting terrorism, the senior official said that Iran has been a victim of terrorism over the past years and it will stay in the frontline of fighting terrorism in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and anywhere holding any hand extended for help.
