Tehran, Dec 11, IRNA – Participants in 1st Tehran World Against Violence and Extremism (WAVE) Conference here Wednesday welcomed President Hassan Rouhani’s proposal on nomination of Dec 18 as Int’l Day against Violence and Extremism by UN.
  Issuing a closing communiqué, the participating foreign ministers, former high ranking officials, parliamentarians, professors, researchers and NGO representatives of more than 50 countries around the globe voiced their support for the Iranian president’s brilliant proposal.

They referred to the ratification of the UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/68/127 dated Dec 10, 2013, based on President Rouhani’s WAVE initiative, expressing deep concern about the unprecedented expansion of the dimensions of terrorism and extremism in recent years and the devastative effects of them on ordinary people’s lives.
