THE U.S. is avoiding responsibility for its reckless policies, the defeat of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group means the defeat of the U.S. regional policy, Iranian Defence Minister Amir Hatami said Wednesday.
The minister told the Moscow Conference on International Security (MCIS) that the U.S. government “prioritises its selfish interests in its foreign policy and continues to avoid responsibility for its reckless policy in the international arena,” which “does not have any bright prospects” since Donald Trump took over as president.
According to Hatami, the danger will manifest itself elsewhere and create even more complicated situation in the region.
“The defeat of IS means the defeat of the U.S. regional policy. There is a very strong belief that this defeat will initiate a new round of violence and tension in the region in order to fill the existing vacuum,” the minister explained.
NAN reports that the one-day conference will focus on the defeat of terrorists in Syria.
The Russian side will share its experience on combating ISIL and provide estimates on further development of the situation in the Middle East, including post-conflict rehabilitation.
Security issues facing Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America will also be in the spotlight of the forum.
Special session will address “Soft power” phenomenon as a tool to pursue military-political objectives.
The Conference participants will enjoy familiarisation tour of the Military-patriotic recreation park of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation “Patriot”. (Sputnik/NAN)
