Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli rejected foreign intervention in the Middle East, saying regional countries are capable of ensuring lasting security in the region.

“Terrorism, extremism and human trafficking are (among) the major problems in the region which have emerged due to the support the United States, the Israeli regime and some regional countries provide for extremist movements and deviant factions,” Press TV quoted Rahmani Fazli as saying in a meeting with Tajikistan’s Interior Minister Major General Ramadan Rahimzadeh in Tehran on Thursday.

He also said the measures taken by the foreign-backed terrorist groups have created instability, crises and insecurity in the region.

“Therefore, the (regional) countries’ contribution to fighting terrorism and extremism can help establish lasting security in the region,” he said, adding, “Tajikistan has good cooperation with Iran and other countries in this regard.”

The Tajik minister, for his part, said terrorist groups have brought insecurity to the world, adding that Iran and Tajikistan plan to expand their cooperation in fighting terrorism.
