Stable Region Not in West's Interests

Stable Region Not in West's Interests

The head of Iran-Algeria Parliamentary Friendship Group censured some western states for making efforts to provoke conflicts among Muslim countries as it seems that peace and stability in the region go against their interests.
Gholamreza Mesbahi Moqaddam made the remarks in a meeting with visiting Chairman of Algerian People's National Assembly (the lower house of the Algerian parliament) Mohamed Larbi Ould Khelifa and some other senior Algerian lawmakers on Sunday, IRNA reported.
In the meeting, the Iranian lawmaker called for exchange of delegations and increased consultations between the authorities of the two sides to help improve ties in the fields of mutual interest.  
Commenting on regional developments, Mesbahi Moqaddam said the Islamic Republic's well-established approach toward the Palestinian people has always been based on backing the oppressed nation against the Zionist regime.  
The parliamentarian condemned the Saudi aggression against Yemen and called for all-out efforts on the part of Muslim countries to help send humanitarian aid to the war-torn nation.
The Algerian speaker, in turn, pointed to the role of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in promoting freedom and human dignity, saying the event inspired "a wave of changes" throughout the region and even the world.  He praised the "special political relations" between Tehran and Algiers and called for enhanced economic ties given the capabilities of both sides.  
Elsewhere, he referred to the good geopolitical position of his country which has increased the importance of the role it can play to help solve regional issues and said, "Algeria does its best to help bring stability to the region through its intermediary activities and hosting negotiations between the parties to internal conflicts in countries such as Libya."
Referring to the drop in oil prices as a common concern for the two sides, he urged enhanced collaboration to help each other to deal with the challenge.  
The Algerian official used to serve as Algerian ambassador to Tehran before he was appointed as parliament speaker in 2012.
