Iran: US intervention ‘major challenge’ warns foreign minister

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned West Asia is undergoing one of its most difficult times during a speech at the 2nd Tehran Security Conference on Monday. Speaking at the conference, Zarif accused US policies and intervention in the region of being the “major challenge that fueled current crises and made them more complicated.” The US, Zarif said, “continues to ignore the... Еще concrete realities in the region, and persists in its destabilising and destructive policies.” Zarif also identified extremism as a challenge to the region, and said it was now “facing eradication.” “Syrian and Iraqi people and government opposed IS bravely for the last 6 years and achieved numerous victories, and we are glad that we supported the nations of these two countries under the said conditions,” Zarif added. The 2nd Tehran Security Conference opened in the Iranian capital on Monday under the name «Regional security in the West Asia: Emerging Challenges and Trends,» with over 200 Iranian and foreign political dignitaries in attendance. The conference opened one day after Iran's Revolutionary Guard declared an end to the recent unrest that has swept through Iran since the start of anti-government protests.
