IPIS joint conference with Romanias Middle East Political and Economic Institute (MEPEI)

IPIS joint conference with Romanias Middle East Political and Economic Institute (MEPEI)

IPIS joint conference with Romanias Middle East Political and Economic Institute (MEPEI) was held on November 6th and attended by senior researchers and former ambassadors in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The session was divided into two panels: “The Possible Role of I.R. Iran and Romania in creating Economic Corridors, namely One Belt One Road Initiative” and“Iran and Romania’s Viewpoints with Regard to Developments in MENA”. The meeting started with a slide show presentation by Dr. Muresan, President of EURISC Foundation. Dr. Muresan presented the Danube Strategy which complements the One Belt One Road Initiative and touches the lives of 4.4 Billion in 61 different states and how it makes the perfect basis for cooperation and stability. Dr. Muresan added that this enormous project needs technical infrastructure as well as revision of perception on part of many countries. China-Iran partnership can be integral as it paves the way for cooperation and building infrastructure as well as confidence between different states. While European statements toward Iran vary, Europe has shown that it can reach a homogenous stance with regar to Iran but long-term Energy cooperation is integral to guarantee such developments in the future. In the second panel, foreign policy specialists from Ministry of Foreign Affairs presented I.R. Iran’s principal policy in MENA: “Territorial Integrity of All States”. Iran condemns secessionist movements specially those instigated from outside. In this frame, regional ambitions of powers who seek to disintegrate Syria and Iraq are unacceptable as it will have dire ramifications for the country in question and also the region. Experts from Romania affirmed those statements and added that contrary to what is propagated from Washington think tanks, Iran has shown to be a power for status quo in a region mired with transnational terrorism and sectarian movements who are determined to change national borders.
