Madrid, July 27, IRNA – Iranian Ambassador to Ecuador Saadat Aghajani said on Saturday that multilateralism, collective wisdom and south-south cooperation are vital for achieving stability and development in the region.

According to Ecuadorian media, Aghajani made the remarks in an expert meeting which was held in Iran embassy in presence of Ecuadorian professors, diplomats, media people and managers of think-tanks on the situation in the region and the US intervention.

Pulling out of the international and bilateral commitments, imposing trade tariffs which have resulted in war of tariffs against some important countries like China, Russia and Iran, imposing sanctions against countries that are not under the US control, creating regional coalitions aiming to develop US policies, adopting ant-immigration policies against Latin America are examples the US transgressed the International Law and the Charter of the United Nations, Aghajani noted.

He also criticized Saudi Arabia and the UAE for their position against regional interests.
