Duma chief: U.S. using terror as pretext for intervention

December 8, 2018

TEHRAN – Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said on Saturday that the United States is using terrorism as an instrument to pressure and directly intervene in the affairs of sovereign states, Tasnim reported.

“The geopolitical ambitions of the United States of America, which continue to use terrorists and extremists as an instrument of pressure and direct interference in the affairs of sovereign states, are interfering with well-coordinated work,” Volodin told a regional conference on counter-terrorism in Tehran.

He also said countries need to have a common understanding of terrorism, which requires a single list of terrorist groups as agreed upon by all.
