TEHRAN - Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has expressed his new-year congratulations in a message, emphasizing that the contemporary world is in need of returning to pure teachings of divine prophets so as to achieve justice, peace, and serenity, and reduce economic, political, and social inequalities.

According to the Fars news agency, Larijani further noted that the world’s future is threatened the most by terrorism.
The recent terrorist attacks in the Western Asia, Europe, and Africa are explicitly showing the threats of the non-human phenomenon to the whole world, he said.
Defeating extremist and Takiri groups requires continuous communication and interaction among all countries at all levels, especially parliamentary ones, the Parliament speaker remarked.
According to Larijani, parliamentary cooperation should be at the top of the agenda when it comes to battling terrorism and withering the roots of extremist thoughts such as poverty, inequality, intervention policies, etc.
As concluding words to his message, Larijani laid emphasis on the point that Islam is the religion of kindness, brotherhood, and benevolence and the atrocities of the terrorist groups have no relationship to Islam.
