RNA - Speaking on Tuesday in a ceremony attended by Omani officials, diplomats, military advisors and political and cultural figures, Nouri Shahroudi said that common threats require collective resolve to deal with.
The envoy highlighted great menaces of terrorism against humanity, saying that Iran is playing major role in the region and has paid a lot to fight international terrorism.
He noted that in today’s intertwined world, materializing interests of country will not be possible without considering interests of others.
Referring to Iran’s achievements after the victory of the Islamic Revolution, he said that there is no doubt that the Islamic Revolution of Iran was a movement toward negation of internal tyranny, foreigners’ hegemony and the realization of freedom, justice and independence.
Iran could open in a new chapter based on public participation and their votes in line with realization of national determination.
He referred to real political independence and establishing religious democracy as the most important achievements of the Islamic Revolution.
Accordingly, Iran could register significant indices with regard to observation of democracy, granting political rights to citizens, preserving gender justice like boosting women’s role in society, respecting minorities’ rights, scientific growth in medical, nano-technology and nuclear fields, empowering private sector and supporting foreign investment.
Nouri Shahroudi reiterated the fact that Iran is trying to boost public participation to reinforce international cooperation and help resolve complicated international and regional issues.
Elaborating on strong relations between Iran and Oman, Iranian diplomat said it is of importance due to cultural, religious, geographical and historical affinities.
Elsewhere in his remarks, he expressed hope for developing relations during the reign of new Omani Sultan Haitham bin Tariq.
Iran has been actively combatting the spread of terrorism in the Middle East with offering supports to legitimate governments of Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan in their struggle with expansion of western-backed Takfiri terrorist groups in the region.
Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani was Tehran’s main architect of anti-terrorism campaign, who was revered as the hero of the fight against the ISIL and Takfiri groups. Despite being loved by the nations of the Middle East, the late commander was assassinated on January 03 by the terrorist Army of the US under a directive from the US President Donald Trump.
Last month, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif lauded IRGC Qods Force Commander General Soleimani as the most effective force against ISIL terrorists, and said the late commander’s illegal assassination made the pro-terrorism parties happy.
"General Soleimani was the single most effective force against the ISIL," Zarif said addressing Raisina Dialogue 2020 in New Delhi, India.
Later in the month, Former Iranian Economy Minister Dr. Mohammad Javad Iravani, in a letter to President of Financial Action Task Force Xiangmin Liu, urged the body to prove impartiality and genuine combat against terrorism by imposing sanctions against President Trump for assassinating General Soleimani.
