Iran’s parliament speaker Ali Larijani on Monday launched a scathing attack against international bodies, saying that they have been used by major powers like the United States to detrimental ends.
“The unfair and unjust power structure in the international arena has led to the instrumental use of the specialised international bodies; a situation detrimental to the present and future of mankind,” Larijani told the World Conference of Speakers of Parliaments meeting in Geneva.
Pointing to terrorist attacks such as the twin suicide bombings at a Shiite mosque in southeast Iran last week, Larijani blamed world powers for the failure of international organisations to bring about peace and stability.
“The current prevailing structure of power has not only been unable to secure international peace and security, but also led to the emergence of such new phenomena as terrorism in a very dangerous and organised framework,” said Larijani.
