Iran minister says US creates int'l disorder

Beijing, Sept 8, IRNA – The United States has caused chaos in the international order, and it makes use of all kinds of means including terrorist groups to achieve its goals, Iranian defense minister said here on Saturday.

'US does not care other players' and other countries' interests,' Brigadier General Amir Hatami said in a meeting with Vice-Chairmen of the Central Military Commission (CMC) of China Zhang Youxia.

Iran's Hatami arrived in Beijing on Thursday evening. He is visiting Beijing at the invitation of his Chinese counterpart Wei Fenghe.

Violating intentional regulations, waging trade wars and being indifferent to the international agreements including the Iran Deal and Paris Agreement are among the measures taken and being followed up by the US against the public security and order, Hatami said.

General Hatami quoted Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei's as saying that China has a unique place in Iran's foreign policy.

Touching upon the global questions, Hatami said the situation of today's world is very complicated.

The West Asia region has turned into one of the major centers for crisis in the world, he added.

He went on to say that terrorism, extremism and separatism with the help of extra-regional support lead to worsening the crisis.

On the Syria issue, Iranian minister said the terrorists had occupied about 90 percent of the Syrian soil; however, the Syrian nation, government and armed forces with the help of their friends including Iran, Russia and Hezbollah could counter the terrorists.

Hatami further said that China's international support for Syria in the international arena has also been effective, as the terrorists are close to final failure in Syria.

The two sides, in the meeting, also reviewed various issues including bilateral cooperation for peace and security and efforts to implement Joint Statement on Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.

The military officials also held talks on ways to widen defense cooperation.

On Friday, Iranian defense minister in a meeting with his Chinese counterpart said that both countries enjoy common interests and threats and are able to promote cooperation within that framework.
