Zarif: Fighting extremism needs common universal strategy

Oslo, June 14, IRNA – Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said fighting extremism and terrorism required a collective global strategy.

Talking in Oslo Forum 2016 on Tuesday, he said everybody has to notice that extremism and terrorisms were a universal problem which called for a global answer.

He said all will be losers if any single body decides to use extremism as an instrument to get to their goals.

He stressed the importance of changing attitudes towards certain international issues and said while the US believed Iran’s centrifuges are tools for developing bombs, Iran disagreed with this attitude and sought to defend its natural rights and prove the US that it had no rights to decide for the Iranian nation.
