Tunisia, Aug 31, IRNA — Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called on all Muslim countries to get united against extremism.

‘Today the main battle is between extremism and moderation and all Muslim countries should become united against extremism in a single front,’ Zarif said in a meeting with his Tunisian counterpart Taieb Baccouche in Tunis on Monday.

Zarif and Baccouche met in the Tunisian capital today. During the meeting the two sides discussed mutual cooperation and finding ways for regional crises.
