Iran's Zarif: ISIS is a threat to Asia
Iranian Foreign Minister has said that the ISIS terrorist group is trying to shift its base to Afghanistan.
In an interview with India Today, Zarif said: "These countries need to unite to fight the threat emanating from the terror group."
"The revival of IS (also known as Daesh) is the source of common concern between India, Iran and Pakistan. The terror outfit is moving its base from Syria and Iraq to Afghanistan. There are territories within Afghanistan that are of great concern for everyone. The threat is not faced by just one country, but the entire region," Javad Zarif said.
According to Iran's Foreign Minister, there are reports of IS operatives carrying out operations in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan from its bases in Afghanistan.
Since the beginning of formation of ISIL, this group received substantial military and financial support from United States.
The terrorist group attacked vast swathes of Iraq and Syria, committing myriads of crimes. 207
