Iran at forefront of fighting terrorism

Tehran, Oct 16, IRNA - Spokesman for Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said that the Islamic Republic of Iran as a major victim of terrorism has always been at the forefront of fighting it and paid its costs.

Ali Najafi Khoshroudi said in his speech to the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Committee on International Peace and Security in Geneva, Switzerland, 'One of the most important international procedures in the fight against terrorism and extremism is the adoption of preventive and defensive policies.'

Referring to the ISIL terrorist attacks in Ahvaz and the attacks last year in the parliament and the holy shrine of Imam Khomeini, he said, 'Despite all this, the Islamic Republic of Iran's resolve on constant struggle with terrorism and extremism will not weaken and we are pursuing this in the two areas of the adoption of the necessary security arrangements and the field of diplomacy.'

Emphasizing that today's world is witnessing complex developments that have created different challenges for modern humans, he said, 'Climate change, economic crises, lack of development, aggression and war, hunger, etc., are among those challenges which preoccupied minds of many everyday.'
