TEHRAN - Armed Forces Chief of Staff Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said on Saturday that military men can be the “people’s sanctuary” in difficult time.

During a speech at the 4th International Asia-Pacific Forum on Military Medicine in Tehran, he said, “The military medicine and military men are the people’s sanctuary in difficult situation and natural disasters.”

According to the Fars news agency, he said that Iran is prepared to increase cooperation and share its experience with the International Committee of Military Medicine (ICMM).

“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s Armed Forces do not spare any efforts to materialize the humanitarian goals of the International Committee of Military Medicine and present its experiences in this field,” Baqeri stated.

He added, “Exchange of knowledge and experience in the field of military medicine can be one of the important issues and capacities in area of diplomacy and development of international cooperation in the defense sector.”

The ICMM is an international and intergovernmental organization consisting of more than one hundred states. The ICMM was established in 1921, after World War I had revealed the lack of care provided to victims and the need to strengthen cooperation between the health services of the armed forces worldwide.
