Tehran will provide international bodies with clear and convincing evidence on the role of the supporters of Takfiri groups in the crimes committed in Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, Syria and other countries, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on January 19, Iran's IRNA News Agency reported.
Zarif made the remarks in reaction to the assassination of Iranian diplomat Abolqassem Assadi in the Yemeni capital of Sana'a.
"A small group is backing such dangerous moves and fueling clashes in the region and beyond," Zarif added.
"Iran is ready for an international campaign against extremism and sectarianism," he explained.
The Iranian foreign minister went on to note that he delivered that message to top officials in Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Russia during his recent tour of the region.
Zarif posted the comment on his Facebook page.
