In a meeting with Iran’s Foreign Ministry Deputy in Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amirabdollahian, the former Germany foreign minister Joschka Fischer addressed the Middle East security.
Pointing to ongoing regional instabilities, Fischer asserted that the lack of security will harm everyone, stressing the need for forming a collective security structure, in which Iran would be a key player.
Maintaining that the Syrian crisis has already dragged on for too long, he stated that the Geneva II meeting on Syria is a highly important event, maintaining that with Iran’s cooperation, the meeting will be likely to reach a desirable conclusion and find a way out of the Syrian crisis.
Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister in Arab and African Affairs in turn pointed to the growing intensity of extremism in the Middle East and its unfavorable aftermaths to include such catastrophic events as the recent bombing near Iran’s Embassy in Beirut.
Amir Abdollahian maintained that foreign intervention in the affairs of the Middle East will further complicate the problem and increase tension.
