Iran’s Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli, currently on a visit to Tajikistan, said extremism, terrorism, human trafficking, drug trafficking, and insecurity in the Middle East are mostly created by foreign countries, IRNA reported.
Reviewing major regional developments with his Tajik counterpart, the Iranian minister referred to the 42-year-long resistance of Iran against the foreign pressures and attacks.
The reason of most of the incidents around Iran is due to the anger of foreign countries with Tehran’s resistance, independence, and creation of stability and security without reliance on foreigners, Rahmani Fazli said.
Referring to the numerous political, social, cultural, historical, and linguistic commonalities between Iran and Tajikistan, he said that people of Iran and Tajikistan seek expansion of bilateral ties.
Iran is ready to cooperate with Tajikistan in political, social, security, crisis, and civil registration issues, Rahmani Fazli said.
He went on to say that people of the region are capable of solving their own problems.
Expressing readiness to cooperate with Iran, Tajikistan’s Minister of Internal Affairs Ramazon Rahimov said experience has proven that countering terrorism, organized crimes, drug trafficking, and cybercrimes is not possible without cooperation with other countries.
