Iran FM: Terrorism, extremism are major issues in Middle East

(MENAFN) Iran's Foreign Minister, Hossein Amirabdollahian, has cautioned that terrorism and extremism remain major issues in the Middle East.

Amirabdollahian made the statements during a meeting with Csaba Krösi, the president of the United Nations General Assembly's 77th session, on Tuesday.

The Iranian FM emphasized the Islamic Republic's importance of the UN General Assembly, expressing optimism that the current session will give a chance to share perspectives on world peace and security concerns.

He went on to say that the Middle East is still dealing with terrorism and extremism as the key challenges, which have been compounded by events in Afghanistan, and that the country has become a cause of concern for regional states.

In his remarks, the top diplomat pointed to Iran's attempts in managing dust storms, encouraging neighboring countries to collaborate in this regard because it is a phenomenon that endangers the health of millions of people. He also expressed optimism that the UN General Assembly will recognize dust storms as a global concern.

Krösi, for his part, commended Iran's attitude in this year's session, believing that the Islamic Republic may play an important role in boosting collaboration among UNGA member nations.

Concerning the UN Security Council's inability to assess numerous international matters, he stated that the UNGA member nations expect the global organization to play a more active role, particularly in dealing with security challenges.
