The Iranian parliament speaker says world powers seem to want to destroy the Middle East.
The big bower hand in hand with terrorists are determined to destroy the entire Middle East region, probably considering it one of their international achievements, said the Iranian Parliament Speaker in Geneva Monday.
Ali Larijani who is in Geneva to participate in the 131st Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) made the comment in a meeting with the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Peter Maurer.
The Parliament Speaker expressed hope that the efforts made by the ICRC will lead to the improvement of the living conditions for Middle Eastern nations in some regional countries that are going through a difficult period.
“In no historical era the Middle East has experienced a worse status than it is experiencing today, ” he said, adding, “Big powers and terrorists intend to destroy the entire region, maybe hoping that destroying the region will be considered one of their recent achievements.”
He said that the criminal acts committed by ISIL are enormous, adding that ISIL is a strange group and even worse than the Taliban who display harsh and very inhumane behaviors.
The top Red Cross official, for his part, said he has similar viewpoints with the Iranian top MP on ISIL and regional matters and can therefore have fruitful consultations on the matter with him.
Larijani arrived in Geneva at the top of an Iranian parliamentary delegation to attend the IPU session.
