Progress Contingent On Dialogue Among Societies

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Iran’s Ambassador to Armenia Mohammad Koleini denounced the US policy of globalization–saying that it functions under the guise of progress and advancement of civilization–yet it does the opposite.

Speaking to reporters in Yerevan–Koleini said that the word "civilization" implies unity among human beings.

Koleini went on to say that some developmental models–imposed by the West–lead humanity away from progress–integration and democracy and towards eradication of these very ideals.

The politicians of the powerful Western states–motivated by short-sighted material and factional interests–exploit human potential for the advancement of a one-world government–Koleini said. He added that peaceful relations should be based on mutual respect of different nations.

"The world nations should defy reactionary tendencies (backed by principles and ideals–rooted in their religious–national–historical heritage–and benefiting from positive achievemen’s of contemporary civilization)–march towards a promising future," he said.

"Establishment and enhancement of civility–whether at national or international level–is contingent upon the relationship among societies and civilizations representing various views–inclinations and approaches," said Koleini.
