Wednesday, 10 October, 2018 - 12:30

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani lashed out at the US unilateral policies in the world and added that such approaches would lead to more global problems.

The Iranian top lawmaker made the remarks on Tuesday while addressing the third meeting of Speakers of Eurasian Countries' Parliaments in Turkey’s Antalya.

Rebuking the US' aggressive policies, Larijani called for other countries’ cooperation to deal with aggressive policies of the US.

He further stressed that the US and Israel have undermined the global security. Larijani condemned the US President Donald Trump’s unlawful decisions, including the recognition of Palestine’s Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel's capital.

He also referred to the US’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement and adding fuel to the economic war and tariff tensions as other aggressive measures taken by Trump.

Larijani also touched upon the US’ unilateral withdrawal from the Iran’s landmark nuclear deal and warned about the reappearance of unilateralism in the international arena.

The official asked the participants in the meeting for a closer cooperation, and adoption of practical policies to boost multilateral decisions, as well as redefining and developing their relations in the political, security, economic and business aspects.

Speakers of 20 countries’ parliaments and delegations from 17 Asian and European countries are taking part in the meeting, comprising around 700 officials convened in the Turkish resort city to discuss cooperation on economic and environmental issues, and sustainable development.
