A senior diplomat described the potential establishment of “terrorist regimes” as the most serious threat facing the world. “The acts of Daesh [the so-called Islamic State militant group] confirm that the greatest threat in today’s world is transformation of terrorist organizations into terrorist regimes,” Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said. He made the remarks in an address to the annual meeting of the World Policy Conference in the Swiss city of Montreux on Sunday, Press TV reported. “It is regrettable that over the past years, national and democratic uprisings of the people of the region have been derailed by terrorists,” he said. Amir-Abdollahian noted that due to certain regional governments’ poor leadership and imprecise understanding of their respective countries’ internal developments, “weapons and terror and not ballot boxes are determining the fate of the nations”. Terrorism, which threatens world security and targets all governments, nations and religions, is “the product of the interventionist and irresponsible behavior of certain regional and extra-regional players in the Middle East and North Africa region”, he added .
