The Iranian Parliament (Majlis) speaker says that the double-standard policy of the major powers vis-à-vis the nuclear and terrorism issues has caused a chaotic situation in the Middle East region.

At a meeting with Singaporean Foreign Minister George Yeo in Tehran on Sunday, Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said that the situations in Iraq and Afghanistan are good examples of chaos caused by the double standards of the major powers.

Larijani also stated that Iran and Singapore have great potential to expand their relations in various areas.

The Singaporean foreign minister said that Singapore would like to see Iran play a greater role in Asia.

Singapore believes every nation has the right to access nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes, Yeo stated.

He went on to say that the era of the Westerners' domination of Asia has ended.

Commenting on the nuclear issue, Yeo said that the dispute over Iran's nuclear program can only be resolved through dialogue and diplomacy.
