Iran Urges AALCO to Study Legal Aspects of Fighting Terrorism

Danesh Yazdi, who also presided the 53rd meeting of the AALCO in Tehran last month, made the remarks in New York on Monday.

He referred to the resolution approved during the AALCO's meeting in Tehran in September which underlined the necessity for studying the legal aspects of fighting violence and terrorism, and said this issue should be prioritized at the international level.

Danesh Yazdi called for cooperation among the AALCO members to this end, and invited the Asian and African countries to increase their interactions to create a balance in the international legal system and trends.

Seven Asian States, namely Burma (now Myanmar), Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), India, Indonesia, Iraq, Japan, and the United Arab Republic (now Arab Republic of Egypt and Syrian Arab Republic) are the original Member States.

Forty-seven countries comprising almost all the major States from Asia and Africa are presently the Members of the Organization. These countries are: Arab Republic of Egypt, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, Botswana, Cameroon, Cyprus, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Gambia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Islamic Republic of Iran, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, People’s Republic of China, Qatar, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Somalia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, State of Palestine, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, and Republic of Yemen.
