TEHRAN(Basirat): The growth of terrorism in the region, as the result of monopolistic and opportunist approach towards international security, will bring a series of crises for humanity, Iran's defense minister said on Wednesday.
Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami who was speaking
in the 7th Moscow Conference on International Security (MCIS), said,

the past 20 years and it can bring 20 more years of geopolitical crises
for mankind, he said.

extremist groups, such as Al Qaeda and Daesh (ISIS) in the recent two
decades and in the sophisticated wars in various regions of the world,
particularly in Iraq and Syria, is a clear indication to the bitter
truth, the minister said.
'Managing Daesh instead of confronting
it, occupying Palestine and the continuation of the crimes by the
Zionist regime, as well as the racist policies of the regime in the
occupied territories, and provoking the Muslims, intensified by Trump's
policies, such as moving the US embassy to Quds, all are contributing to
accelerate the process,' he said.
He accused Trump's administration as an obstacle to restoring stability in the region.
governments in the region, instead of relying on intraregional
commonalities, unity and local security, have sought refuge at
opportunist powers to buy security in order that they can continue their
illegitimate throne,' the Iranian defense minister said.
'There would be no prospect for security in the region, unless the pain is healed,' he said.
7th MCIS, being held in Moscow on April 4-5, will focus on recent
defeats of terrorists in Syria and will be attended by defense
ministers, chiefs of staff, senior commanders as well as officials of
international organizations from more than 80 countries.
