Nations’ unity, obstacle to Trump’s extremism: Brazil

Unity among the world countries can prevent US President Donald Trump's extremist ambitions from being realized, a senior Brazilian senator said here on Sunday.

US measures are against the international agreements, the visiting Fernando Collor, President of the Commission of External Relations and National Defense of the Federal Senate of Brazil, said in a meeting held in Tehran with Chairman of Iran's Majlis (Parliament) National Security And Foreign Policy Commission Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh.

About the US anti-Iran bans which were put into effect from November 5, Collor said that any sanction policy will create obstacle for economic relations around the world.

For his part, Falahatpisheh said that Iran has been progressing despite sanctions.

Talking of the US May 8 unilateral withdrawal from the Iran Deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the senior lawmaker said that Trump is the first political official after German leader Adolf Hitler at the Second World War that has breached the international agreements and extended insecurity across the globe.

About the regional developments, the parliamentarian added that ideology of the extremist terrorists in the region is rooted in certain US allies.

Touching upon the murder of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Falahatpisheh said that the crime is just an example of years-long massacre of the Muslims.

The 59-year-old Saudi investigative journalist, who had left the country since Bin Salman was named crown prince and moved to the US, vanished on October second after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to collect documents for his forthcoming marriage. After 18 days of silence and rejecting claims that Khashoggi was murdered, the Saudi government finally bowed down to international pressure and admitted the prominent journalist was killed inside Istanbul consulate.

It is the common duty of all politicians to prevent extremism in the world, he said.

At the end of the meeting, the two sides stressed the importance of expansion of bilateral economic cooperation.
