Past experiences show that Iran does not remain silent in the face of moves aimed at destabilizing the region, Head of Iran’s Strategic Council on Foreign Relations said on Monday.

Iran Press/Iran news: "We have proved that we do not remain silent on instability in the region but stand against destabilizing moves," Kamal Kharrazi, a former foreign minister, said in a seminar on ‘peace and stability in West Asia; one region, one fate’.

Describing Iran as the most stable country in the region, he added, “Following the wars in the region, everybody is coming to the conclusion that it is not possible to resolve conflicts through war," Iran Press reported.

Kharrazi concluded that what happened in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen proved that the Islamic Republic of Iran’s regional presence contributes to security.

A seminar on ‘peace and stability in West Asia; one region, one fate’ held in Center for Political and International Studies of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Director of the Permanent Secretariat of Tehran Security Conference, Jalal Dehghani Firouzabadi, addressed the seminar on Monday, saying the third edition of the Security Conference will be held on 13-14 January 2019.

He added that the third edition of the conference, unlike the previous two, will be held on two days, and two or more scientific conferences will be held prior, the results of which can set the mood for the main event.

Dehghani maintained that the Security Conference will comprise 10 panels on the current developments in the world, such as the Yemeni catastrophe, war crimes and violation of human security, Syria’s experience in the fight against terrorism, the prospect of stability in West Asia, 'Deal of the Century', the Palestinian issue, Afghanistan’s comprehensive  peace  process, and the opportunities ahead.

Other topics to be discussed in the panels include the United States’ lack of commitment to international law and treaties; the role of joint security cooperation in the fight against Takfiri terrorism; the rule of the Internet; stability, cooperation and collective progress in the region; the prospect of EU’s friendly relations with Iran; the future of Iraq; and Iran’s defense diplomacy.

“Security is one of our common interests in the region, and there are several strategies to provide it. In our opinion, one of the prerequisites for achieving security is to reach a common understanding,” Dehghani noted. 101/202
