Foreign Meddling Fuels Mideast TensionsForeign Meddling Fuels Mideast Tensions

A senior lawmaker said the military interference of foreign powers in the internal affairs of Middle Eastern countries has intensified regional tensions. “Military interference by foreign countries and the delivery of arms to terrorist groups have led to the escalation of tensions in the region,” Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said in a meeting with Ukrainian Ambassador in Tehran Sergei Burdylyak on Sunday, Press TV reported. Boroujerdi described as “wrong and abortive” the bid by the US and its regional allies to support terrorist groups, saying such a policy is also at odds with their own self-declared democratic standards. The Ukrainian ambassador said senior political and parliamentary officials of Tehran and Kiev need to hold constant consultations and exchange regular visits to help improve cordial relations. Burdylyak added that Iran is an important country in the region and expressed his country’s readiness to bolster political, economic and industrial cooperation with the Islamic Republic.
