TEHRAN, Iran, The International Conference on Defence and Security in West Asia, kicked off at the Supreme National Defence University, in Tehran, with the participation of 40 countries.

The Conference aims to come up with a future cooperation memo, that would be the basis for finding a common platform for military cooperation, among West Asian countries.

Participants in the conference exchanged views on the most important security issues and challenges in West Asia, for guaranteeing a more secure and stable future for their countries, in addition to discussing new prospects for cooperation among them.

During the conference, Iranian Defence Minister, Brigadier General Amir Hatami, condemned the US policies towards the region, indicating that, the Western colonial ambitions have been the main source of the schemes which target regional states.

Hatami added that, establishing an Israeli entity was like a bleeding wound in the region.

Syria’s Defence Minister, Mahmoud Shawa said, on the sidelines of the conference, that, holding such conferences will build bridges of cooperation among the states of West Asia and will disclose the falseness of the states, which are trying to spread lies with regard to what is taking place in Syria.

Shawa affirmed that holding such conferences explain the other opinion for the whole world, as the West is trying through its mass media to falsify facts about terrorism and the role of the hostile Western states and their tools in the region in supporting terrorism.
