RNA - “World needs leaders who urge dialogue and compassion not walls and exclusion,” Zarif wrote on his Twitter account.


The Iranian foreign minister called on the world leaders to promote dialogue and compassion throughout the world.


Zarif also appreciated the stance taken by Catholic leader Pope Francis who has strongly criticized atrocities, committed against Myanmar Rohingya Muslims, defending their rights to "live their faith".


In relevant remarks in late January, President Hassan Rouhani renewed Iran's resolve to fight against terrorist groups, and said that all the world countries should join hands in the campaign against terrorism and extremism.


"Iran as a victim of terrorism is now standing in the frontline of anti-terror campaign; other world countries, specially France, can also play a crucial role in fighting the terrorist groups and restoring peace and stability to the region," President Rouhani said in a meeting with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault in Tehran.
