Danish Ambassador to Tehran Soren Haslund conferred on Wednesday with Head of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Alaeddin Boroujerdi on expansion of parliamentary cooperation between the two countries.
At the meeting, the Danish ambassador lauded the positive role of the Islamic Republic of Iran in fostering peace and stability in Afghanistan.
He said Denmark and Iran have common goals in restoring security and stability to Afghanistan and in anti drug fight in that country which could help broaden cooperation between the two countries.
Europe attaches importance to Iran’s decisive role in anti drug campaign in the region, he said.
Calling the MKO as a terrorist group, the Danish ambassador underlined that the Danish government is determined to prevent activities of the grouplet in the country.
Boroujerdi, for his part, referred to exchange of visits between the European and Iranian parliamentary delegations and said the two countries enjoyed ample potential which should be explored.
Role of parliaments in expanding and consolidating ties among countries are of prime importance, Boroujerdi said.
Referring to crises in the region mainly in Afghanistan, he described them as very complicated. He said increasing
terrorist acts and unprecedented production of narcotic drugs in Afghanistan is a cause of concern for all countries in the region.
Campaign against drug trafficking would have an effective impact on activities of terrorist groups in Afghanistan and the region, he pointed out.
Criticizing the weak role of Europe in anti-drug fight, he called for more active role on the part of Europe in dealing with the issue.
