|Larijani says West’s wrong strategy has empowered terrorists||
TEHRAN – Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani says extremists and warmongers have created a crisis in the region, adding that the wrong strategies adopted by the West in dealing with terrorists have not only failed but have actually empowered terrorists in some cases.
He made the remarks during a speech at the Second National Conference on the Development of the Makran Coast and the Maritime Power of the Islamic Republic in the southern port city of Jask on Wednesday.
Larijani noted that over the past three decades, many wars have broken out in the Persian Gulf region, adding, “Had we paid greater attention to coastal areas, we could have been far more successful in defense.”
And in the development of Iran’s Makran coast, attention should be paid to both the security and economic spheres, he stated.
