A senior Iranian official has underlined the significance of close consultation between regional and international governments for the resolution of problems in the Middle East region. Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a meeting with Czech Republic's Deputy Foreign Minister Czech Deputy Foreign Minister Martin Tlapa in Tehran on Sunday. Stressing the importance of the Middle East region for the global economy and politics, Amir-Abdollahian called on all countries to act in a responsible manner with regards to Middle East developments. “Given the high capacities of the [Middle East] region, security and stability in the region would be in the interest of the international community,” he said. Amir-Abdollahian further pointed to the spread of terrorism and extremism in the region, saying that the fight against terrorism and extremism should be "genuine" and based on international regulations. “The Islamic Republic of Iran has always reiterated that the fight against terrorism and extremism should be a true and real battle and based on international norms and conventions,” he said. The Iranian official said no "selective" approach should be taken in fighting terrorism and extremism. Tlapa, for his part, pointed to the key and influential role of the Islamic Republic in the promotion of security in the region and expressed his country’s willingness to hold consultations with Tehran for further enhancement of bilateral ties. He voiced concern over the spread of extremism and terrorism in the region, and called for more cooperation among the world countries to counter these evil phenomena. The Takfiri ISIL terrorists, of whom many are foreign militants, currently control parts of eastern Syria and Iraq’s northern and western regions, where they have been committing heinous crimes, including the mass execution of civilians and Iraqi security forces. France is scheduled to host a conference on Monday to discuss ways to tackle the ISIL terrorists in Iraq and Syria. The Paris meeting would come as the US is forming a so-called international coalition to battle the Takfiri ISIL militants.
