US wrong policies to blame for regional crises: Boroujerdi

TEHRAN, Nov. 17 (MNA) – Chairman of Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission has said that the current crises in the region are mostly the result of US wrong policies.

During a meeting with the newly-appointed Italian ambassador to Tehran Mauro Konchater, Alaeddin Boroujerdi maintained that the US and its allies’ wrong policies are to blame for the current crises in the region and said, “distinguishing between the good and the bad terrorist has led to the formation and expansion of terrorist groups in the region, and this policy is threatening the regional and international security.”

Boroujerdi also discussed the issue on sanctions against Iran and added, “the imposition of sanctions is a failed policy, and this has never succeeded in forcing Iran to retreat from its rightful positions; rather, it has only led to enormous financial loss for European industrial trade companies.”

Boroujerdi asserted that Iranian people have always had a positive impression of Italy and that this positive collective memory would certainly strengthen political and economic ties between the two countries.

Mauro Konchater, for his part, while expressing satisfaction for the beginning of his mission in Iran, considered Iran a prominent active force in the region and said, “the crises in the region could have never been possible to control were it not for Iran’s timely interventions.”

He also underlined the large economic and industrial capacity of the two countries and maintained that these opportunities can help promote cooperation between Iran and Italy, especially with the final agreement in Iran’s nuclear talks.
