Iran: defeat of ISIS means defeat of US regional policy
The defeat of the ISIS terrorist group means the defeat of the US regional policy, Iranian Defense Minister Amir Hatami said at the Moscow Conference on International Security.
The minister said that the US government “prioritizes its selfish interests in its foreign policy and continues to avoid responsibility for its reckless policy in the international arena,” which "does not have any bright prospects" since Donald Trump has taken the office of US President.
Hatami stressed that the danger will manifest itself elsewhere and create an even more complicated situation in the region.
"The defeat of ISIS means the defeat of the US regional policy. There is a very strong belief that this defeat will initiate a new round of violence and tension in the region in order to fill the existing vacuum," Sputnik cited the minister as saying.
