Key Asian States Urged to Join Fight Against Terrorism

An effective fight against terrorism in the region requires the cooperation of influential Asian countries, particularly China and Central Asian nations, gripped by the fear of rising extremism, a senior security official said.
"We are seeking the cooperation of other influential countries in Asia to combat terrorism," Iran's Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani told IRNA in remarks published on Friday.
He made the statements before leaving the Black Sea resort city of Sochi in Russia where he attended the Ninth International Meeting of High-Level Representatives on Security Issues.
The United States plans to "exert pressure" on and "undermine security" in independent countries such as Iran, Russia and China, Shamkhani said, adding that a collective action is needed to address the growing threats. 
"We want China and some Central Asian countries to participate in such efforts. And Afghanistan will be one of the cornerstones of our cooperation", as Washington plans to pave the way for the infiltration of terrorists linked to the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group into the landlocked country, he added.
Shamkhani said the summit provided a good platform for participants to discuss the path forward concerning the campaign against terrorism.
