TEHRAN, Dec. 12 (Press Shia Agency) – Parliament Speaker Special Aide on International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian met with Algerian ambassador to Iran and said “instead of seriously combating terrorists, the US has relocated some of their leaders in Syria and Iraq and has provided protection for them.”
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a meeting with Iranian Ambassador to Iran Abdol-Monem Ahriz in Tehran.
Amir-Abdollahian referred to the growing political and parliamentary relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Algeria, and the regional transformations and the victories in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon achieved against ISIL and terrorists, saying “unfortunately, instead of seriously combating terrorists, the US has relocated some terrorist leaders in Syria and Iraq and has provided protection for them. The conduct adopted by the US in fighting terrorism is highly suspicious.”
Touching upon the international affairs, he highlighted the importance of transformations in Palestine and added “Trump’s tactless remarks and his recognition of al-Quds as the capital of the illegitimate Israeli regime violate international law, although they have led to an increase in solidarity among Palestinian groups and the enlightenment of public opinion with respect to the issue of Palestine.”
Having stressed the necessity of supporting the downtrodden people of Palestine and upholding al-Quds as a Palestinian city, Abdol-Monem Ahriz expressed gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for fighting terrorism and asserted “maintaining security and countering terrorism is vital for all countries.”
