In the summary of the conference, which was presented by Mr. Flavius CABA-MARIA, the head of the Middle East Political and Economic Institute (MEPEI) of Romania, and Iqbali Zarch, the head of the Eurasian Studies Department at the Institute for Political and International Studies, the following points were emphasized:

  • Regional success of the Islamic Republic of Iran Foreign Policy (membership in Shanghai and BRICS and progress in relations with the Persian Gulf).
  • Europe and its role in the crisis is reviewed, and Europe needs correct and realistic understanding and balanced policies more than ever.
  • In today's world, continuing dual standard policies is impossible.
  • The two dangerous crises of Ukraine and Palestine need an urgent solution. The importance of stopping Israel's brutal attacks on the people of Gaza, identifying the right of the Palestinian people in determining their fate, and defending their land must be emphasized by the international community.
  • The European Union and the international community must be committed to preventing and resolving global crises, especially Ukraine and Palestine.
  • Subjects such as energy, business, regional immigration, and security are the main focus of the European Union and the Middle East.
  • China-American competition in East Asia is growing and can become a deal.
  • Sanctions, as a cruel tool, target the people of countries such as Syria and Iran and are inhumane.
  • The Islamic Republic of Iran can cooperate with Europe in most areas, especially energy and transit.
