Tehran, Oct 25, IRNA – Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said on Tuesday that terrorism in the region precedes diplomatic initiatives to settle the diputes.
He made the remarks in a meeting with Chairman of Bosnia- Herzegovina Presidential Council Bakir Izetbegovic.
Considering reasons for expansion of terrorism in the region, Larijani said that terrorist groups were being used as tool by a number of countries, but after while, they lost control of them and now the terrorists have upper hands.
Another reason is existence of a current of thought among minority of Muslims which helps bring up terrorists.
Izetbegovic arrived in Tehran on Monday to pay an official 4-day visit.
He was accorded formal welcome by President Hassan Rouhani.
Izetbegovic was received by Supreme Leader this afternoon.
He is to visit Isfahan on October 26.
