Delivering a lecture at Islamabad Policy Institute (IPI), a local think tank, on ‘Pak-Iran Peace and Security Cooperation’ on Thursday, Seyyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini said that Iran believes in security for all, but for the realization of the vision of an all-encompassing peace, all sides will have to take clear steps.

He said today, we are celebrating the 41st anniversary of the glorious victory of the Islamic Revolution under the sagacious leadership of Imam Khomeini (R.S), the architect of the Islamic Revolution in the present era.

“Islamic Revolution of Iran under the leadership of a religious scholar, well known for his command in philosophy, mysticism, spirituality, and ethics, means, Ayatollah Khomeini (R.A), is a rare occurrence, which shines and glitters on zenith of Islamic history,” he noted.

“Islamic Revolution overturned motives on the basis of race and class and became a harbinger of equality, human solidarity and protection of human dignity and justice to the creation of Allah without distinction and superiority,” said the ambassador.

Seyyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini added this revolution besides the characteristics mentioned here, due to its anti-imperialistic nature and animosity against oppression and support to the oppressed nations under the suppression of the imperialistic powers, has attracted the attention of a number of enthusiasts from the deprived and the oppressed segments of the world and played a vital role in awakening of the Islamic Ummah.

“Today, when I am here among you, our region recently witnessed one of the brutal acts of terrorism,” he added.

The envoy said around 40 days have passed to the criminal assassination of the great Commander of Islam, Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani.

He said the Islamic Republic of Iran attaches high value to the brotherly country of Pakistan, the neighbor, which has been a good ally on happy and sad moments.

“One of the most important problems, faced by the region, is wrong impression and miscalculations which have and will have a deep effect on regional equations,” viewed the envoy.

He said, unfortunately, this cognitive impairment and miscalculations do not limit to the USA but some of its regional allies and associates also due to their submissive and unconditional dependence and alliance, have adopted the same wrong and disastrous path.
