Iran says U.S. military intervention “cause of tension” in region

TEHRAN (Rahnuma):Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that military intervention of the United States in the region has caused problems for the nations, semi-official Fars news agency reported.

Recently, U.S. military moves have caused new problems in the region, Rouhani said in a meeting with visiting president of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Gabriela Cuevas Barron.

He said that the “U.S. unilateralism and violation of international regulation” is another reason for global and regional problems.

Rouhani decried U.S. sanctions against Iran as “economic terrorism.”

The Iranian president urged for parliamentary cooperation between the countries to counter challenges, such as terrorism, unilateralism and environmental disputes.

Iran ascribes high credit to IPU for its mission to develop peace and stability, Rouhani concluded.

For her part, Barron hailed Iranian 2015 international nuclear deal, saying that “the accord has had very strong content with the message of dialogue and interaction as the key elements to achieve peace and stability.”
