  • Iran, Switzerland Discuss Ways to Confront Terrorism in Region

    TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian and Director General of the Swiss Foreign Ministry Wolfgang Brulhart voiced concern over the spread of a new wave of terrorism in the Middle-East, and called for enhancement of anti-terrorism efforts.

    During the meeting in Tehran on Tuesday, Amir Abdollahian reiterated Iran's fixed and principled stance on terrorism, and said that fighting terrorism should be pursued within the frameworks of international laws and respecting countries' sovereignty.

    He further added that double-standard policies in the fight against terrorism will complicate regional problems.

    Brulhart, for his part, hailed Iran's positive role in regional developments, saying that the two countries have held constructive negotiations on developments, Syrian problems in particular, and taken good steps in the field of humanitarian affairs.

    On Friday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Seyed Abbas Araqchi underlined the necessity for consistent and unbiased campaign on the terrorist groups, including the ISIL, in all countries without discrimination.

    "Consistency in fighting the ISIL wherever it is present, be it in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon or elsewhere, and whoever it threatens, is a must," Araqchi said, addressing the Security Council debate on the Situation Concerning Iraq in New York.
