West Asia might implode: Iran president advisor

Tehran, Dec 16, IRNA - Head of the Center for Strategic Studies of President Office Hesameddin Ashena warned on Saturday that West Asia is facing the threat of annihilation from within because of the severe challenges it is facing.

A way out of the current situation should be found to stabilize the regional governments and their borders, he said in a seminar themed Regional Security in West Asia: Emerging Challenges and Trends held in the University of Tehran.

The era of easy governance is now over and is not comparable to previous decades, the Iranian president's cultural advisor added.

'Technological advances have developed the relations between peoples and the philosophy of rights invites the subjects to turn into powerful and accountable civilians,' he said.

The West Asia and North of Africa (WANA) region over the past decade has been through a painful experience with the loss of lives of millions of people and it might encounter a much worse situation, Ashna added.

Imbalanced growth of population, weakening of democracy, and crisis of national identify are attributed to the countries in this region having roots in unefficient governments, unfair distribution of wealth, political atmosphere opennes and social welfare, he said.

'WANA is now taking the lead in the use of social networks ... which has reduced the persuation power of the regional governments.'

Water shortage crisis might shake pillars of some civilizations facing its menace, he cautioned. 'Under such circumstances wars of water sounds inevitable.'
