Iran’s security chief: Ahvaz attack shows "double standard" approach toward terrorism
Head of Iran's National Security Council said, foreign-backed terrorist attack in southwestern city of Ahvaz, once again revealed the double-standard approach of those countries with bogus claims on fighting terrorism.
Iran Press/Irannews: Speaking at the first meeting of security secretaries and advisers of regional states on Wednesday in Tehran, Iran’s security chief Ali Shamkhani said: “The instrumental use of terrorism backed with political and logistical support, the production and spread of deviant and Takfiri beliefs, interference in the internal affairs of other countries and occupation under the pretext of [fighting] terrorism are clear examples of such double standards.”
He added, thousands of terrorists still remain active in Syria and other countries, stressing that a lack of serious fight against them will endanger the future and stability of the region.
During the meeting, Shamkhani noted the existence of some documentations which show a lack of serious resolve in the US governing body for eradicating ISIS.
“American planes, despite having accurate information on the location of terrorists in certain areas, are unwilling to carry out airstrikes on them and in some cases, they had even dropped cargoes for them, or rescued ISIS leaders from the siege of the Syrian and Iraqi armies,” Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani added, according Iran Press.
Two day-long meeting of senior national security officials of five countries of the region, held in Tehran on Wednesday.
The meeting, hosted by SNSC and held at Parsian Azadi Hotel in northern Tehran, was attended by security officials from Russia, India, Afghanistan, and China.
The ways to fight terrorism, extremism and new threats posed by them in West Asia discussed at the meeting.
