U.S. Be­hind Daesh Ter­ror­ists Pres­ence In Afghanistan

Iran News - - FRONT PAGE -

TEHRAN (PressTV) – Ma­jlis Speaker Ali Lar­i­jani says the United States has trans­ferred a large num­ber of Daesh ter­ror­ists to Afghanistan over the past years.

Speak­ing in Tehran on Thurs­day, Lar­i­jani said this could bring about a re­play else­where in Asia of the cri­sis, which was suf­fered by Iraq and Syria dur­ing the Tak­firi ter­ror group’s three-year reign in the Arab coun­tries, Tasnim News Agency re­ported.

Co­op­er­a­tion among Iran, China, Pak­istan, Turkey, Rus­sia, and Afghanistan would be of “great sig­nif­i­cance,” he told Chen Zu, the vis­it­ing vice-chair­man of the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee of the Chi­nese Na­tional Peo­ple’s Congress.

The re­marks echoed sim­i­lar ones in Jan­uary by Leader of the Is­lamic Rev­o­lu­tion Ay­a­tol­lah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

The Chi­nese of­fi­cial is in Tehran for an up­com­ing two-day con­fer­ence on ter­ror­ism to be at­tended by top par­lia­men­tar­i­ans from Iran, China, Pak­istan, Turkey, Rus­sia, and Afghanistan. The event is the sec­ond of its type, the pre­vi­ous one be­ing hosted by Pak­istan last year.

He said Tehran and Bei­jing had en­joyed “good coun­tert­er­ror­ism co­op­er­a­tion” in re­cent years.

Daesh at­tacked Iraq and Syria in 2014, over­run­ning huge swathes of ter­ri­tory with the avowed in­ten­tion of us­ing the coun­tries to ex­pand its turf.
