EghtesadOnline: Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani on Sunday invited the regional states including Saudi Arabia to form alliance for international campaign against terrorism.
Larijani made the remarks in his speech to Tehran Security Conference opened here Sunday morning with the participation of representatives from a number of regional countries to discuss avenues to maintain sustainable security in the region.
According to IRNA, he urged all regional countries to form coalitions to help resolve the humanitarian crises in different parts of the region, including, Syria, Yemen and Bahrain
Larijani said that instead of engaging in war of attrition, regional countries, such as Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iraq and Pakistan can begin a movement towards regional tranquility based on Islam, support for the Palestinian people, fight against terrorism and mutual economic interests.
'All these countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, have to know that Iran is neither their enemy, nor is it opposing them to play a major role in the region,' Larijani said.
'We are opposed to war-mongering in Yemen and Syria. However, we openly announce that we respect all Muslim regional countries playing a role in establishment of security in the region and regard it as a useful measure,' he added.
Although it seems that the security confusion in the region is not to come to an end within a short period of time, Iran reaches out to all Muslim countries for finding a settlement to regional conflicts, said the Iranian speaker.
