The chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee said fighting against terrorism is a principled policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi made the remarks in a meeting with Vice President of Germany's Bundestag Claudia Roth in Tehran on Saturday.

He also said, "All armed militants fighting against the defenseless people in Syria and Iraq, no matter what their title is, are terrorists and dividing them to good and bad is meaningless and has no effect on their real nature," ICANA reported.

Boroujerdi highlighted the positive effect of dialogue between officials and representatives of different countries in helping create mutual understanding and said, "Iran and Germany have exchanged numerous parliamentary and governmental delegations over the past years which could help increase mutual understanding and facilitate further expansion of bilateral ties."

Referring to the negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) over Tehran's nuclear program, the lawmaker said since early in the talks, the definite right of the Iranian nation to enjoy nuclear energy for peaceful purposes has been stressed as "non-negotiable".

Roth, for her part, expressed satisfaction with her visit to Tehran, adding, "Our visit to Iran is meant to open a new window for bilateral relations and help enhance cordial cooperation between Iran and Germany in various fields."

The German deputy speaker expressed her country's willingness to cooperate with Iran in the battle against terrorism in the region and said, "Germany is well aware of Iran's effective role in the regional developments and welcomes cooperation with the country in the anti-terror campaign."
