Iran top security official arrives in Sochi

Sochi, April 24, IRNA - Secretary of National Security Council and the Supreme Leader's Representative Ali Shamkhani arrived in Sochi, Russia to attend a security conference

Upon his arrival at Sochi airport, Shamkhani elaborated on the importance of the summit in reviewing those capacities which should be considered in managing the international crises and creating security and in replacing hardware by diplomacy and negotiations.

He also referred to the importance of boosting negotiations and cooperation between effective countries in international security to reduce security dangers and crises.

Shamkhani condemned the increasing arm race led by the West in Western Asia, saying some regional countries by distancing themselves from logical trend are spending the national capital to kill their neighbors and to create hatred and violence.

He described brutal bombardment of the Yemeni people by Saudi Arabia as a deep wound on conscience of humanity.

Selling large amount of arms by West to Saudi Arabia to conduct genocide in Yemen and with deceitful compassion toward Syrian people is a ridiculous duet which is not acceptable for public opinion.

Piling up arms has never brought security, Shamkhani said, adding that relying on popular capacities to reinforce political structure will supply sustainable security for countries.

The event is scheduled to be held with the attendance of senior security officials from 5 continents on April 25-26.

Shamkhani is to elaborate on security conditions, political and economic development in the region and Iran's strategies and experiences as regard fighting terrorist and security threats, Head of SNSC Media Department Alireza Zarifian said.

Reviewing international crises and development of tactics and strategies adopted by international terrorist organizations are on the agenda of the first day of the event, he said.

During the second day, international information security, global responses to international challenges, production and distribution of narcotics and threatening international peace and stability will be discussed by participants, he added.

Shamkhani is also scheduled to hold bilateral and multilateral talks with other officials to promote joint political, military and security initiatives.
