Zarif Blasts Certain Neighbours of Iran for Playing with Extremism
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif lambasted certain neighbors of his country for supporting and financing extremist and terrorist groups in the region, warning that their instrumental use of terrorism would eventually backfire on them.
"Today, our region is facing a highly serious and extreme danger, that is the danger of unchartered and unlimited extremism and sectarianism resulting from the wrong and short-sighted policies of a number of regional and international actors," Zarif said, addressing a gathering of Iranian envoys to foreign states and the country's governor-generals in Tehran on Monday.
He described extremism and sectarianism as a security risk for the entire world, and said, "Unfortunately, certain neighbors still look at extremism as a playing card and not a danger."
"As long as our neighbors don’t fully accept this reality that extremism is no capital for anyone and cannot be used as a playing instrument, unfortunately, we will continue to witness that the Takfiri groups are and will be extensively supported by certain regional states or certain parts of their ruling system."
In relevant remarks in September, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said that the Riyadh government is the main supporter of extremism in the region.
"The continuation of armed intervention in Syria and Yemen and destruction of the infrastructures of the Arab and Muslim countries has resulted in the spread of pervasive extremism and instability in the region," Afkham said.
"Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia has turned into a main origin of the spread of extremism and war-mongering, and exactly at the same time that it victimized thousands of Hajj pilgrims of Muslims countries due to its mismanagement, it also massacred hundreds of Yemeni civilians in an airstrike on a wedding ceremony in Yemen; the international community should seriously fulfill its duty to stop this war-mongering approach and massacre of civilians," the Iranian foreign ministry spokeswoman said.

The sunken ship had repeatedly fired rockets on residential areas in Ta'iz province, inflicting casualties and destruction there.
It was the fourth time that a Saudi warship is completely destroyed during the Saudi-led war on Yemen.
Other Saudi battleships retreated fast following the attack.
On Friday, two smaller vessels of the Saudi navy were destroyed by the Yemeni missile attacks.
The coast of al-Mukha is located in Bab al-Mandab strait and the Saudi-led forces have been trying hard for several months now to win control over coastal regions near the waterway.
On October 25, the Yemeni forces fired rockets at a Saudi-led coalition warship and destroyed it near al-Mukha coast.
On October 11, another ship which belonged to the Egyptian army and named al-Mahrousa was destroyed by Yemeni missiles in the coastal waters near al-Mukha coast.

The warship was wrecked off the Southwestern coast of Yemen, in the Bab al-Mandab Strait, which connects the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 229 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,920 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
