Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr.18
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says more effort is needed to deal with terrorism in the region.
In a meeting with Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop in Tehran, Rouhani said that eliminating intellectual and economic roots of terrorism needs more effort, Iran's IRIB reported on April 18.
To this end, Iran is ready to cooperate with all countries, including Australia, to combat violence, extremism, and terrorism, Rouhani said.
"We should make all governments and nations to act against terrorism and aggression free from their race and religion," he added. To resolve different problems, political and logical approaches should be taken advantage of, he said, adding that the crisis in Yemen will be resolve through political negotiations, not through bombing defenseless people.
Rouhani said Apr.9 that Yemeni people will not give up in the face of air strikes, calling for ceasefire and end of the Saudi Arabia-led coalition's military operation.
He called the military operation a wrong option which has already failed in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, warning the countries involved in the coalition of the sequences of their approach towards Yemen.
