Crucial Role in Fighting Terror Crucial Role in Fighting Terror

Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli has underscored Iran's critical role in fighting regional terrorism, dismissing US and Saudi charges that Tehran's is playing a ‘destabilizing role’ in the strategic region.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran is the most powerful country in the region to have fought against terrorism and this is a fact well known to all concerned nations and their authorities," IRNA quoted him as saying on Sunday.
If it weren't for Iran's advisory assistance to the anti-terror campaign, other countries in the region and beyond would have been exposed as easy targets, he said.
Iran denies allegations that it is trying to destabilize the Middle East -- charges leveled by the United States and its regional allies, particularly Saudi Arabia and Israel.
