An official at the Presidential Office has said that the youth should not allow to be affected by extremist groups and those who think that the revival of moderation would sound their death knell.

Morteza Bank, Vice President for Supervision and Strategic Affairs, said in a congress of the Moderation and Development Party on Thursday despite the emergence of groups such as ISIL [which have hijacked the Muslim faith], Islam pursues moderation.

No extremist group can institutionalize extremist acts in the name of Islam in the country, he said.

He added that those who think development and conclusion of agreements with [the rest of] the world is dangerous for Iran defy the existing trend in the country [a reference to the policy of moderation and interaction].
