The Iranian envoy pointed to the dual approach of some Western countries towards extremist groups that divided them into good and bad terrorism and underlined that there is no good or bad terrorism, and such a short-minded division leads to the expansion of crisis and endangerment of global security since terrorism cannot be limited to one specific region.

While enumerating Iran's humanitarian measures in Syria, such as constructing schools, healthcare and treatment centers, aid related to COVID-19, and helping rebuild economic and industrial infrastructures in the country, Dehqani criticized the silence of the international community towards the Zionist regime's hostilities on nonmilitary centers in Syria.

The Iranian ambassador termed such actions a clear violation of the UN Charter.

"Solution to Syrian crisis can only be achieved through a comprehensive approach that covers all aspects of issue including end of illegal sanctions, return of all Syrian refugees, cessation of Zionist attacks on Syria and increased humanitarian aid to this country," he concluded.
