By Staff, Agencies
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Thursday that US stirs up tension and conflicts in the Middle East region.
President Rouhani made the remarks in the inaugural speech to the 33rd International Islamic Unity Conference opened in the Iranian capital this morning with participation of 350 world elites and figures from 39 countries.
“Today, everyone in both region and the Muslim World have seen nothing from the world arrogance and the US, other than tension, massacre, bloodshed and conflict”, the president said in his address to the conference.
Rouhani said that the International Conference will focus on the issue of Palestine and the holy al-Quds which are the main cause of the World of Islam.
Elites and scholars will not let the issue of Palestine be forgotten, President Rouhani stressed.
President Rouhani said: “Although our enemies have not spared any effort to marginalize the issue of Palestine and al-Quds [Jerusalem], the public opinion, clerics and scholars of the Muslim World will never let this goal be materialized.”
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian President stressed that the “US goal behind deploying forces in Syria has never been combating terrorism at all”.
The Iranian President called on the regional countries for more cooperation among the neighboring countries and the Muslim nations, saying it is the only way to tackle the ongoing crises in the region.
He stressed that relying on the enemies and non-regional powers to solve regional challenges is a “strategic mistake” and will lead nowhere.
The International Islamic Unity Conference, themed “Ummah unity in defending the al-Aqsa Mosque,” started today [Thursday] with the participation of 350 personalities from 93 countries and will go on till November 16.
The International Islamic Unity Conference is held annually in an effort to lay the ground for stronger unity and solidarity among Muslims and provide solutions for their problems.
