Iran proposes military alliance of Muslim countries
Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug. 14 / Trend T.Jafarov /
It is necessary to create a military alliance of Muslim countries. It can be created in order to repel an attack on the Muslim countries, as well as to protect the Palestinian people, the Mehr news agency quoted Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi as saying at today's meeting at the Ministry of Defense.
Vahidi discussed the Palestinian issue, and noted that every year on the last Friday of Ramadan, many countries celebrate Jerusalem Day and hold rallies to protest against Israel. He said the Muslim countries should unite for a just solution to the Palestinian problem.
"If a strong and strategic alliance of Muslim countries in order to protect the Palestinian land is created, then the 'Zionist regime' will have no choice but to bow to the Palestinian people," Vahidi said.
The defense minister also commented on the numerous reports of Israeli plans to attack Iran.
"The Israeli regime" which lost 22-day and 33-day war against the Hezbollah in Lebanon, can not oppose the Iranian people, Vahidi said.
He stressed that the threat of an attack on Iran speaks not about the power of Israel, but its weakness.
