“I think we need to agree that there is no military solutions in any of these cases (Iraq or Syria) although there might be a military component. Even for defeating extremists you need more than a military strategy,” Mohammad Javad Zarif said.

Zarif is attending a conflict-resolution seminar in Norway.
