Iran calls on world to counter corruption

IRNA A senior Iranian judge invited the countries all over the world to cooperate in the fight against corruption.

All countries which are pioneers in the fight against corruption should be transparent in this regard, Justice Naser Seraj, chairman of General Inspection Organization of Iran, said in a meeting held in Japan with the country's Prosecutor General Katsuyuki Nishikawa.

In the meeting, Seraj said the Iranian organization has taken effective measures towards countering corruption and has signed various agreements with the global countries on the issue.

He called on the Iranian and Japanese officials to share related experiences and make efforts to promote Asian Ombudsman Association (AOA).

Certain Western countries endeavor to damage reputation of the Asian developing countries and make the Middle East region insecure, he said.

Without the foreigners' influence and the presence of the hegemonic system, the region will not only witness peace and tranquility but also experience a place far from corruption, he added.

For his part, the Japanese official appreciated Tehran for attaching importance to its ties with Tokyo from the outset of the establishment of the AOA in 1996.

Nishikawa also said Japan sees implementation of its related agreements with Iran as very important.
