Qassemi said Iran's presence in Iraq and Syria is in response to the "requests of their legitimate governments and in line with fighting terrorism in the region".
Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Monday that Iran is keen to develop ties with the rest of the world, which is "not merely" the United States and European countries.
