Commenting on the issue of Western powers presence in the region, General Vahidi said, the enemies falsely attribute terrorism to Iran, while the Zionist regime overtly commits acts of terrorism. It is a matter of regret to say that terrorist groups are always supported by Iran's enemies in the region.

The issues of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and Convention of Financing Terrorism (CFT) are raised classifying Iran as belonging to a group of risky countries while some countries have been turned into a hub for the presence of terrorist groups, Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi criticized.
