Ethnic, religious miniroties share in protecting Iranˈs security

Tehran, Aug. 14, IRNA – Senior Iranian official on Thursday underlined the signigicant role played by all ethnic and religious minorities in maintaining national security.
Addressing a local gathering here, Special Assistant to the President on Ethnic and Religious Minorities Affairs Ali Younesi said contribution of all Iranians is needed to enable the country to make progress.

Noting that Iran enjoys full security, Younesi added any attempt to marginalize one part of the Iranian nation will be considered as ˈtreason.ˈ

He said the current situation in some neighboring countries including Iraq, was resulted from treason of extremist groups in those countries such as Daesh, al-Qaeda and Taliban.

Those extremist groups have jeopardized security of both the region and the entire world, Younesi stressed.
