TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari expressed the country’s fierce opposition to disintegration of any country in the region.
“One of our red lines is violation of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the regional countries,” Jaberi Ansari told Tasnim in an exclusive interview.
He said Iran formulates plans and takes actions according to the firm belief that none of the regional countries should disintegrate and be divided into new territories.
Despite occasional wrong tactical moves by certain countries in the region, there is a consensus among the vast majority of the regional states that on the strategic scale, disintegration will be an endless game, the diplomat explained.
He then referred to Israel as a player imposed on the region, and one that is not a natural component of West Asia, and whose policy since the beginning of its creation has been dissolution of the region, provoking regional disputes and escalation of inter-regional conflicts.
The spokesman then expressed the hope that two factors would ensure that the region will not face disintegration: the continuing process of national consensus in the countries and the common understanding among regional powers about the strategic threat of disintegration.
