‘US, West responsible for terrorism spread in ME’

Senior Iranian lawmaker Alaeddin Boroujerdi has blamed growing terrorism in the Middle East on the wrong policies adopted by the US and its allies in the region.

The chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Iran’s Majlis expressed hope that the countries fueling the flames of the crisis in Syria would change their approach towards the Arab country.

Boroujerdi made the remarks in a meeting with visiting Polish Undersecretary of State for Security Policy Boguslaw Winid in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Wednesday.

Since the onset of the crisis in Syria, Tehran has believed that problems facing the Arab country can only be resolved through a political approach and “by using the country’s domestic potential,” said the top MP.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to help resolve the regional crises and establish peace and stability in Syria,” Boroujerdi said.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011. Reports indicate that the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside the country.

According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and millions displaced in the violence.

Commenting on bilateral relations between Ian and Poland, Boroujerdi said Iran’s Majlis welcomes the expansion of mutual ties in political, parliamentary, economic and cultural fields.

Winid, for his part, said the two countries have enormous potential to further their bilateral relations and cooperation.

The Polish official also hailed Tehran’s efforts to restore peace in Afghanistan and Iraq and also fight the smuggling of illicit drugs bound for Europe, urging Tehran to play a more prominent role in resolving the regional crises.
