Saeed Jalili, Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, said that “Unfortunately, energy security has been turned into a pretext… to occupy sovereign countries and interfere in their internal affairs. He added that energy-consuming industrial countries resort to any measures and even illegal methods to meet their energy demand. Jalili cited the “assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists by Israeli elements” as an instance of using energy security as a tool by the hegemonic powers. He also described piracy and cyber attacks as other challenges facing the world today.
